Wonderful Ways to Fill Your Home with the Color Green
Add a Piece of Green Furniture to Your Home
Whether you paint it yourself or purchase a piece, green furniture can be a chameleon throughout the seasons. Just like in nature, all the other colors blend beautifully with it.
I’ve refreshed quite a few pieces with the color green through the years, but this “Gorgeous Green Painted Dresser Makeover” is definitely the favorite.
Fill Your Home with Green Plants
There’s no better way to transition from Winter to Spring than to fill your home with green plants. Combining real and artificial is a great combo. But sometimes when you pull your artificial plants out of hibernation, they need a little refresh. See how to revive them in “How to Easily Clean Artificial Plants”.
Decorate with Green
There’s no better way to transition your home into Spring than to decorate with green. A green glass lamp, a green afghan, green accessories and green pillows can add that spark of new life your home craves.

Set a Pretty Table with Green
Dig in your cupboards and closets and bring out all your green dishes, glasses and cups. Setting a pretty table with green will send a little luck of the Irish your way! A wonderful time of year to enjoy Green Depression ware and and Jadeite!

Display Green-Themed Art
This time of year, I love to pull out my “R.A.Fox Prints” collection of vintage framed art. Most of the scenes are of cottages surrounded by gardens. Many of them are set in beautiful green-toned frames. If you don’t want to hang them, simply lean them up on a shelf or the mantel to enjoy green-themed art.

Decorate with Vintage Green Books
Old green books are a decorative staple at my house. They can be used in so many seasons in so many ways. In “Decorating with Vintage Books: The Different Types You Should Find” I share all the different types of books to collect and how they can be used to decorate your home.

DIY With Green
When you’re in the green mood, even your crafting projects seem to go green! Here are two of my favorite green-themed DIY projects to get you in the mood for Spring.

Eat Your Greens
Yes, we’re told to eat a ton of leafy greens, and I do! But here are a couple of my favorite green food recipes that are crowd favorites!
“Broccoli Quiche” (A favorite from my daughter’s grad party)
“Cucumber Lime Punch” (seriously, everybody asks me for this recipe;)
Smell Some Green
One of my favorite ways to chase away the snow is to burn my friend Barb’s hand-poured Fresh Cut Grass candle. We used to sell many of these at my former store and I loved smelling this wonderful fragrance, especially when I was craving Spring.
You can find a Fresh Cut Grass candle HERE.
I hope this post has gotten you in the mood for all things green! Green is the color of Spring bursting forth. Just like in nature, green can be the first sign of Spring to emerge in your home. Then add all the other pretty colors on to that foundation.
Thanks for celebrating the color green with me! It’s definitely my favorite color, in all it’s different hues. Hope you enjoyed Wonderful Ways to Fill Your Home with the Color Green!

Lovely greens. I am judiciously adding a little green here and there. For some reason all the excess and brights from the holidays wore my brain out this year, so I have been soothing things with a lot of clearing away and plenty of ivory and earthy decor. We have had many little snows here in Boulder this year, with continuous white in our mountain views and on the ground. I am getting tired of it, but don’t want to rush the season or I will get sick of spring prematurely. A few rabbits are popping up though.😏
I get it, Jillian! My eyes need a rest after the holidays, too. We’re due to get 25″ of snow this week; yes, tired of it!
I’m the hostess for our Sylvan Lake, MI Garden Club which happens to be on St. Patrick’s Day this year. Love your ideas about collecting all things “green” around the house. And I will use your punch recipe – sounds great. Love, love, love all of your creative, fun, interesting, and especially pretty and practical ideas. Thank you Lora.
Have a fun celebration of green! And so glad you’re enjoying the inspiration; thank you!
Just popping in to say we loved this so much and are so green with envy that we’re featuring it on the Farmhouse Friday Link Party! And we pinned like crazy! 😉
