Green Love


Wow!!! Check out these gorgeous turquoise green velvet armchairs! Aren't they just heavenly. I love the combination of colours used in this room - it reminds me of a similar combination that I recently employed in the home of a client. The turquoise, yellow against the lovely chocolate-y textures makes for a very vibrant palette indeed...

Those chairs are divine. I love the shape. they remind me of some old wingback chairs that my granny had in her old country house. I can just see them now covered in this gorgeous green. I love it.

Shannon, this green looks so much like the green in your sofa. Do you think it's the same material? I really works well with a single chair as much as a whole sofa.

Can't wait to see your client's house Shannon. If you've used these colours then I'm sure it will look really vibrant and beautiful.

A brave choice but a fabulous one. I love the mix that the modern colour brings with the older style book cases, xv.

I love that the entire room is more neutral and then you get the fantastic pop of those beautiful chairs.
They are fantastic!

What a great way to update some classic chairs. And what a fantastic room - I love the fireplace flanked by big French doors. Light and bright, yet cosy and welcoming at the same time.

Lovely furniture! Those chairs are amazing. The yellow really brings out the turquoise. This color combination of turquoise and brown is really becoming more popular.

Oh gosh - these chairs are purely divine. I wouldn't never have thought to add green to such a neutral room; but they work so well here. What a great piece of inspiration
