If you had to pick one accent color for your home, what would it be? I’ve sat on the fence of late, jumping between poppy, navy blue and occasionally orange – it is the color of the year afterall. 

But after spying a particularly stellar home tour, I’ve zeroed in on green. It seems like such a friendly color. And you should began any home design with the goal of it feeling friendly, right?!

While the velvet chesterfield-esque couch is certainly handsomely green focal point, {I give it bonus points for its contrast piping}, I’m actually more smitten with that minty-green side table. I’s the perfect piece to draw the eye to an otherwise dark, and probably forgotten little corner. I just might have to track one down to add a little green goodness to the loft life.
I wouldn’t say no to one of the Stow & Davis teak chairs though! You can check out the rest of this amazing home on Design*Sponge.

  1. Wow that mint green side table is stellar!! Green is a great color, I've always been a huge fan of kelly green!! Especially with white. I think though that my one accents color would be poppy / tangerine mix against all white.

  2. Love this! Kelly green is one of my favorite colors right now. (In fact both my purse and my coffee cup at this moment are Kelly green!)

    I love incorporating it throughout my home.

  6. I love green. Think that it is stunning when paired with so many other tones, shades and schemes. Makes a great pop to most palettes.
