Entries in green (13)


masters green

Lately I've been thinking a lot about this colour and it's closest relatives - kelly green, grass green, lime, vibernum. (yes, sometimes I just think about colour). Today's funny story unfolded at IKEA (OK, sorry, I know enough already with the IKEA). Anyhoo, I was standing in front of this bedding absolutely loving it --its boldness and preppiness -- when a 12-year-oldish boy beside me said in the most enthused and excited manner, "Mom, mom, this is the coolest duvet cover EVER!" I smiled and nodded in wholehearted agreement. Then I thought to myself, how amazing that a product can appeal to me and a boy like that equally. The last thing I need in the world is a duvet cover, but after this little moment I HAD to have it. So on the day of the Masters (congrats Phil), I now officially declare green my signature colour. Here's a celebration.

5 things to love

Well, there are more, but here are 5 things to love about this room.

1. sky-high ceilings.

2. blue sofa + green armchair (always love B+G)

3. campaign chair. yummers.

4. portrait. 

5. giant undressed windows that flood the space with light.

OK, yes, there's somethings bare -- even unfinished -- about this room, but sometimes you don't need the bun and all the toppings. Sometimes the burger is delish on its own. Would you add/change something here? if so, what would it be?
