Rooms to Love: Lean and Green
Working with a whitewashed canvas is a great way to clear the palate after a diet of wintry darkness. Reinvent your decor for the upcoming spring with splashes of cheery color, like leaf green, against white walls, white floors and even a white bedspread. Remember to experiment: the fresh bedroom cottage look shown above can be created with white plus any color, from aqua to tangerine to goldenrod.
This beachy cottage bedroom was once an enclosed porch, and now looks like a Hemingway-esque retreat. Leaf green textiles, bold wall art, and the large palm frond on the dresser help create a tropical feel. The old weathered bench at the foot of the bed is a twist on the usual hope chest, and invites one to lounge. Painted cottage nightstands, one in green and one in white, add a playful touch. We offer a similar customizable end table (Country Farm Classic End Table) in a variety of colors and stains, as well as apron and leg styles.
Is spring your favorite season?
