Viceroy Hotel / Santa Monica

Pantone states, “A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings … A life-affirming shade … the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.”

I LOVE the color green! It’s a calming color yet it’s powerful.  As many of you know I like to bring a little of the outdoors inside and the color Green easily allows me to do so!  The Viceroy Hotel Santa Monica‘s lobby has always made me ultra happy. Kelly Wearstler, the designer of the interior of the hotel, was able to capture the “Modern Colonialism” by using strong pops of color, especially – GREEN!  Here are some additional examples of using Greenery in your home, office or boutique’s space, inspired by the Viceroy.

If you want to add pops of green to your home but do not want to commit to recovering chairs or retiling an entire bath consider adding throw pillows in a green print to your space.  Here are two examples and I actually own the malachite pillows!  Shop options HERE.

Greenery is an adorable option to add color or a theme to your kitchen!  Le Creuset Cookware & Bakeware offer abundant color options including green or “palm”!  Because the color is so vibrant, leaving a piece or two  sitting out in your kitchen looks stylish and adds instant personality to your cooking space.  Shop options HERE.

Green is not just for the home, hit the streets  or relax by the pool feeling powerful in a shade of green that best fits your skin tone and personality.  Trina Turk never disappoints.  Here are some beautiful green options she has designed.  You can wear a bold green  and stand out or wear a small sliver of green mixed with other colors but either way you can walk in confidence knowing your are classically on trend! Shop the  looks here: Green Plaid Coat, Green Dress & One Piece Swim Suite with pops of Green.

Pillows with a Punch…POW!

unnamed

Statement pillows can either make or break a room. It’s kind of like jewelry. Have you ever seen someone who is wearing a fabulous outfit and their bobbles are just wrong? Well, that’s the same with statement pillows.  When you go shopping for a sofa or chair and they come with throw pillows, please do yourself a favor and toss the square pillows aside and just look at the sofa or chair.  The fun of accessorizing comes after the “big-ticket” item has been purchased.  Only then can you think about taking it up a notch and adding some real punch aka “pow-wow”!

My sofa, seen here, is from Horchow. I searched high and low before I found the perfect fit for my space.  Then the fun began  – statement pillows! The not so easy task of finding the perfect “look” took me a few weeks.  Again, after searching dozens of sites and visiting several fabric stores I happily settled on this fabulous black & white pattern by no other than THE Kelly Wearstler and this amazing emerald-green malachite pattern. I hired a seamstress and voila my ideal statement pillows came to life and I could not be happier!
