Sensuous Greens

I am obsessed with the magazine House Beautiful--I become crazy giddy as I slowly sift through its perfectly presented pages (I know...it's a little over the edge but I'm just being honest). I gasp in awe at what these designers come up with; and dream of the day that I can just maybe have a little corner in my home that looks as perfectly put together...or maybe two corners :-) ?!? When I came upon this spread "Sensuous Greens" by: Christine Pittel I had to take a picture and post about it!

I suddenly went from an "anti-green-paint-picker-outer" to "lets paint every room in my home green!" It's amazing to me how there are hundreds of shades to every color. One persons green is never the same as another persons; and it can reflect so many different feelings and emotions. Some shades are very calming, and others are very drastic and spicy. I love it, I do! 

Which one is your favorite? Would you go green in your home?
Paint colors from top to bottom: 
C2 PAINT MARGARITA
PRATT & LAMBERT HAZE GREEN
BEHR OLIVINE
BENJAMIN MOORE GLOUCESTER SAGE
VALSPAR PINE FOREST
BENJAMIN MOORE CHAMELEON
SHERWIN-WILLIAMS SPINACH WHITE
BENJAMIN MOORE CAPRI SEAS
BENJAMIN MOORE PEALE GREEN
RALPH LAUREN DEEP POOL

  3. I love the pine forest and capri seas.
    Not sure if I could paint a whole wall green but def would use it as an accent colour.
    We inherited a bight yellow hall / staircase and I hated it to start with but it is definitely growing on me now.

  4. Those are BEAUTIFUL.

    And for me just seeing that little bit of the color, and the name, gives a lot of scope for the imagination :) Can't even pick a favorite, they're all lovely. Whats funny is, just in the last couple of weeks I've been changing my anti-green ways too!

    I would definitely paint one or more rooms green.

  5. I've definitely been known to paint rooms "preppy lime green" -- it's so refreshing!

  7. I love green! Our living room is painted in about the same color as BEHR OLIVINE. Its so easy to put any other color you want with it. We have red, purple, orange, and teal accents in the same room with it and we love it!
