Using Blues and Greens for Spring

I am so sorry...Blogger is  having an issue and reposting old posts that I edit. If you have already seen this post...just move on. I am sorry to fill your "in box." sheila

Have you been noticed the use of blue and green together recently. A spring trend. 

The shades of blue and green can go from jewel tones to pastels. I am enjoying seeing both. 


I looked through my photos and you can see that I began some blue and green a while back. 

Here is my wedding china that I updated with an olive green linen napkin. 


A new planter and arrangement...my most recent acquisition. I might have bought the arrangement because of the majolica style planter. 😊


With all of the blue and green out there I decided to bring some green into the mama cave...to see how it would play with my blue and white pieces.




I found this bottle around the house. I love shopping the house for my bits and pieces. Just when I think I need to thin out my collection of "stuff" I find a use for something. 





I gathered some green silk pillows and a green throw. I think they will make fine spring colors on the white sofa. 




My husband's grandmother's dish helps to support my spring green theme. 



A majolica salad plate...



Benjamin Moore, Hearts of Palm...in the master bedroom.



Do you like the collection of green fabrics from Lancaster Associates, above?


Or maybe you prefer to have the green tempered some with blues and white. I love the green velvet above. 


If you prefer the lighter shades of blue...you might like the almost aqua or powder blue, above. Bring in pots of greenery, real or faux, to complement any shade of blue. 



Just in case you missed it in an earlier post...here is Greenery, Pantone's 2017 color of the year. 

I understand that green is not for everyone...as in my mother. ha!  We talked about it and decided that maybe she overdosed on 1970s avocado carpet, upholstery, and lighter green wall paint. She wants no more of it. ha!  

I on the other hand still love many shades of green. There are a few that I do not like.


Will you be playing with any blue, green, or a combination this spring?

  2. Blue and green is just fresh looking and serene. I have some green Depression glass...will have to dig it out of the dish cupboard. Hmmm, blue and green may just be the new color decor for the office. It sure needs a fresh look...ha! xoxo

  4. Ah ha! We were both thinking green! I have those green plates you have, but there is a rabbit in the center instead of carrots. I liked the fun edges on the plates. Blue does go really well with it, doesn't it? Love the artichoke vase too! Oh and your wedding China!

    1. Thank you. Those green pillows have been in my pile for a few years....but if I had to guess, it was Marshalls five or six years ago. I know that does not help you now though. So sorry.
