Poe Picks a Green

by Nicki on March 16, 2017

Hello devoted readers,

I’m back to talk about some ways to use green in your home.  The Pantone Color of the year is Greenery for 2017 and they choose this color because they think everyone just wants a big breath of fresh air.  It is a very optimistic color if you ask me.  Not all of us are brave enough to use a bold color on our walls but we may be able to incorporate it into our furnishings and accessories.

In the Embellish girl’s Smythe Park Project they kept the walls neutral, but used a geometric citron green fabric in the window treatments and of course some gorgeous green plants.


This dining project which was a part of the girl’s Ithacaw Creek Project a softer palette of green was created with the wallpaper and gorgeous art.



One of my favorite parts of a project is when the girls start fabric scheming.  This Kelly green fabric in the background is going to become a fully upholstered bed in a future project the girls are working on   The Villa Rosa Project will incorporate bold colors with more Kelly green in an all white house.

This just came in so I decided to add it to this post- can you stand it?  A fully upholstered bed from the Villa Rosa Project turned out amazing!

When choosing green paint the girls have some go-to colors.  Some of their favorites are;

Sea Salt SW 6204

Oyster Bay SW 6206

Topsail SW 6217

Aloof Gray SW6197

Unusual Gray SW 7059

I wish you luck in finding ways to use some green hues in your home.  It’s a great way to make your spaces feel fresh!
