Design | Green + White Living

2017 may be coming to a close in two months, but I'm holding on to Pantone's Color of the Year Greenery and all its different shades. Freshly married with a re-signed lease,  I'm looking for a few small ways to re-energize our Hell's Kitchen apartment and it's no wonder I'm gravitating towards shades of green. Green is a positive color and very inspiring in the way it represents growth, good health and balance in the home. The same things we also want in a marriage right?!  

Okay now let's talk about these (freakin' amazing) rooms. This look and color palette happens to work in my favor since the granite counter tops in our rental apartment kitchen (which extend into the living area) are greenish, something I've mostly been ignoring instead of embracing into the color scheme of the room.

I could just DIE over the natural wooden floors and table against the white wood detailing and cabinets in this kitchen above. 

We also happen to own a vintage rattan armchair and some woven storage baskets which would tie in perfectly with this look and I'm thinking about switching out some of my patterned pillow covers on the sofa for more natural colored or white ones.  

Another thing all of these rooms have in common is the use of nature.  I love how plants are quite literally the accent color in some of these rooms and you can feel the outdoors shining through in the form of natural sunlight, natural textures and textiles. So peaceful, so tranquil. 

I don't know about you, but all of these spaces are leaving me green with envy.
