Green, Always Green!


I think I’m like that bird that is attracted to and collects blue (a bower bird?) except with me it’s green! Here's a picture of my green chair I painted the other week. It's still too bright for my liking, so maybe one day I will fix it! I made the cushion for it last night out of some cath kidston fabric and I think the stoney-brown helps a little...

I'm attracted to the green too.

I guess you had a picture in your mind of what colour you wanted the chair to be... from an outsiders perspective it looks good! It certainly doesn't look out of place with the rest of your belongings.

I too, find it hard picking the right paint shades & know how you feel, but I do think the your chair looks lovely and suits the your home. I could forever gush over your mantel!
Thank you for your wise words - blogging been incredibly inspiring but along with it pressure... self inflicted of course : )

Hi Catherine...thanks for you lovely comments! The chair looks very pretty indeed...I quite like that shade of green and the cushion works very well with it!

I like your chair! It is so funny...I found a chair similar in style to yours and it was already painted a very similiar color of green. The other day I added it the end of our dining table with a cushion!

I think it looks gorgeous and the cushion is beautiful.
You are such a clever sausage.

So many things I love in that photo!! Love the chair - I think the shade of green you've chosen looks lovely. Flowers on the table are cute and love the white basket beneath the fireplace. Can I ask, when you make your cushion covers, what size do you make them in relation to the insert? Am about to make a cover and yours looks the perfect 'plumpness'...

I really like it! and I really like green too, it's one of "my" colors, you know how you always seem to have a few that you always end up coming back to:) and I really like your colors, there's always lovely green+blue+yellow+pink shades in your pictures!
