A Little Green Goes a Long Way

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and it’s got me thinking green—green décor, that is!


That may sound a bit strange considering our love of the light and airy look that comes with farmhouse neutral colors, but sometimes the one thing that this style needs to really pull off the right look is just a touch of color.  And what better to go with natural neutrals than natural greens?


We’ve talked to a few different home décor bloggers about their best decorating tips, including Heather Case from The Southern Hydrangea for her home tour blog, and she agrees that one of the best ways to make a room pop is a simple yet stunning touch of greenery.  This really may be one of the easiest, and most clever ways to make a room pop!  Pair that greenery with one of our adorable neutral colored candles, and you have a match made in heaven!


Heather Case’s home is actually almost all white.  It’s actually pretty amazing, and just gorgeous.  She has the perfect balance of neutral or natural colors in her furnishings, and adds one, maybe two notes of green in every room.  I love how she creates such simple yet eye-catching settings on her living room coffee table.  I can’t get enough of these garland plants!  Heather has really got the pop factor down!


Erin from Cotton Stem Blog uses a bit more of a variety of color in her home, but she still manages to bring the perfect touches of greenery to every room!  She truly is a ‘faux plant lady’ and puts together adorable settings that truly bring life into her home.  I personally love the fireplace in her bedroom.  She’s taken this and has created something unique by filling the fireplace with logs and notes of green, and has kept the mantelpiece simple yet beautiful.


Finally, we have Natalie from the Vintage Porch.  Her specialty, and my favorite thing about her home, is right there in the name.  Her home really is vintage.  Everything about it takes you back in time, or reminds you of your favorite antique store!  The small notes of greenery she adds in every room only enhance the already lovely décor.  The pale green she often uses is a great way to compliment the pale neutrals of her home while adding the perfect amount of contrast.


What you should know about adding greenery to your home is this: a little goes a long way, but don’t be afraid to be unique!  Greenery in the form of plants is a great way to bring some freshness into your home (even if they are faux plants), while adding the perfect touches of color where they need to be.  They complement your home in all the best ways, so why not join the queens of greens and add a little greenery to your home!


Want your home to smell like the perfect touch of greenery, too?  Check out our brand new fragrance: Fresh Cut Herbs!  This cozy, spicy smell of herbs includes basil and fresh spearmint with hints of floral and apple.  The perfect scent to bring an extra note of freshness into your home!
