In the Mood: March 2016

spring greens door

Green has always been one of my favorite colors. As of late, I have been feeling ultra-inspired by softer green hues as well as shades of chartreuse. While I adore moss green and olive hues, I typically associate them with fall, even though they are completely timeless. I am currently craving verdant, spring-like shades of green. Perhaps it is because a new season is just around the corner or because I am using a beautiful Schumacher silk velvet in the most beautiful shade of green for the bedroom I am designing for the Southern Style Now show house in New Orleans this spring, which I haven’t been able to stop thinking about. I suppose these “color crushes” of mine are just moods that strike from time to time. Most designers I know go through similar phases in which they’re especially loving a certain color palette, type of fabric, pattern, etc. What has currently struck your fancy?

{I am in love with the details in this sweet bedroom by Lauren Geddes Duff. I was instantly transported to my childhood when I saw the eyelet trim on the pillowcase. I had dresses with eyelet trim, eyelet linens, the works. The Bowood wallpaper by Colefax and Fowler is an absolute classic. It feels so fresh paired with the blue and white ticking stripe on the sham and piping/bow detail on the green headboard. Brava, Lauren!}
