going green.

man-oh-man. i saw this home photographed by trevor tondro for the new york times and had one of those swoon-worthy moments. i envy this casual, very bohemian and completely effortless look so much. it feels so lived in and comfortable. i’m also noticing a big trend towards the use of lots of green in decor lately which i think adds to that easy going, ‘i wanna hang out here’ factor — whether it be living plants, bold fresh kelly greens or softer, pale muted tones, everyone seems to be going green.

    Really lovely. Both of those bedrooms caught my eye, and even though they’re quite different, I’d be very content in either one. Green is typically a very healing color as it is associated with the heart chakra. Every room could probably do with a little bit of green.

  5. doesnt the greenery just KILL it? i think it makes everything feel so alive.

    ps – congrats on the Best Blogs list — YAY!!!!

  6. Oh my, oh my, oh my!

    really like green, big fan of the lockers and the leather one seater

  8. The collage of images behind that luscious green couch is just too much goodness. Such a great and inexpensive way to personalize a space. That’s a nap room for sure.
