Gorgeous in green!

My absolute favorite color in the world is green. Not too long ago, I declared my love for green here. When it comes to decorating, the first color that comes to mind often involves my favorite color. Just a couple of days ago, we hung some olive green curtains in my living room. I am not lying when I said I am fascinated with green because we bought 16 identical (yes,16) curtain panels for one room, living room that is. Since my husband was quite busy over the weekend with work, he only managed to hang half of the curtain panels. With all the measurements and drilling work involved, it took him almost 6 hours.

Alright, enough about my green curtains. Let's continue with the inspirational pictures below and you will understand why it is such a gorgeous color to introduce to your own home. No matter where and how much you use it, whether as a paint color, furniture or accessories, in the living room, dining room, kitchen or bathroom, in small doses or big doses, as a dominant color or an accent color, it is always a winner! I even have the pictures to prove it! See what I mean?

  6. I love these pictures! Green is a favourite of mine too. My last apartment had it in every room. Now I've divided my attention between green and orange.
