Green with Red Accents

Amanda Peet’s bedroom from domino.

A few months ago my hard drive crashed and I lost all my favorite inspiration photos. I keep having visions of forgotten rooms. I search for hours—cruising blogs, flickr groups and google image—I am usually at a loss and feel totally frustrated.

One of my favorite interiors of all time is Amanda Peet’s bedroom from domino. The greens in the Cole & Son wallpaper are perfect. A dark headboard mixes effortlessly with whitewashed antiques. The red chair in the corner seals the deal.

The lovely Anne from The City Sage sent over these gorgeous interior shots showcasing one of my favorite color combos: green with red and pink accents. It seems every time I across a green room that I really love it always has a little pop of red or pink. Sometimes the pop comes on curtains, chairs, or even just a pillow. Some great interior inspiration from Anne below.

Candy striped curtains and an upholstered red chair from Simple Style.

Country green cabinets with french red striped tea towel curtains from Easy Elegance.

Feminine floral curtains with pink accents. Love the candlestick bedside table from Perfect English.

  1. Loved these pix. I saw my home in one swoop. Only the bedroom was a little too cool for me. Wanted warmer colors. Could just be becaue I’m in Minnesota. Thanks for the inspiration!


  2. So funny, was just going through my old Domino magazines – color inspiration for a new project and came across the Peet spread – beautiful! Miss Domino, but find one of their editor’s new online magazine, Lonny Magazine interesting.


  3. i have a inspiration file called “green/red.” amelie’s house was all green and red too. a little darker than what you have hear, but the same classic, grown up feeling.

  5. Katy:
    Great post, as usual. Do you think there is any way to source the headboard from Amanda Peet’s bedroom? It is exactly what we have been looking for!



  6. wow, I didn’t remember Amanda Peet’s bedroom fro Domino (I think because I was stuck on her amazing living room and nursery.) you’re right about the colors — so pretty. understated but has personality.


  7. I just I should rephrase, I had a back up external hard drive. But my external drive somehow reconfigured all the files. So they are all there…somewhere….but so hard to find.


  8. That’s a real shame that you lost all those inspiration pictures! I want to make a habit of printing the ones I love out, but that takes up a lot of ink and is expensive!

    Love these photos!


  9. As someone who stockpiles inspiration photos, can I suggest Evernote? It gives everything a home and it’s pretty easy to use.


  10. I have this combo in our bedroom and, after nearly 12 years, we have no desire to change. The green is serene, but the pops of red are cheerful and cozy at the same time. I’ve used red/cream for the duvet and two side chairs with cream wood legs. On, and cream end table lamps with red birds/flowers – an Asian touch. Desk, bureau and end tables are dark wood. I’m staying warm in bed right now — it’s cold outside!


  11. I love this combination so much that I went through a period where I had to focus very hard to keep from overusing it in my home (i.e., in every room). Gorgeous, though.
