The Color Green

Perhaps it’s our lack of green thumbs or love for early spring leaves but we’re always drawn to all things green – chilled pea soup with mint and creme fraiche, the Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz, and especially our dear friend Kim Seybert’s palm frond placemats and napkins.  Green is one of our favorite colors for home decor and accessories, too, as it brings the freshness of the outdoors in, even when snow is still on the ground.  Jamie Drake’s vision for his rooms for the Manhattan House was one of the best examples of this we’ve seen lately:

We often use green flowers in our designs as they represent optimism, renewal and good fortune and green bouquets add the perfect splash of color in any room.  So this spring, we’re seeing green and filling our home with these:
