Green on Greene

Posted on | February 19, 2010 | 8 Comments

In Soho this morning I spotted more green paint inspiration. Is the world telling me something? I love this green. Now I’m leaning back toward painting the molding in my den green. Ah! What to do? Above and below a building on Greene Street in Soho.

    I always like that building – the green is so nice and unexpected.

    I think you should go with the green. When you can’t stop thinking about something, it’s usually a good indication of what you really want. Plus, all of the green inspiration pictures you’ve posted have been beeaautiful!

    Was watching “The Hangover” last night and thought of you when I remarked on how much I was drawn to the completely Forest Green Laquer Library in one of the last scenes. Library is the father of the bride’s, scene is when the father is discussing the wedding costs to the Groom. You should check it out, I would not have noticed it if I didn’t obsessively check your site :) I think if you do the trim Green the walls should blend with them by being a shade or similar color. Like the above architecture so it doesn’t seem too framed out.

    Those greens look fantastic! I think that they would give your home a very sophisticated yet soft touch. I especially think they are appropriate for your style of house. Go for it. If you don’t like it, it’s only paint!

    I agree with Julie. You have too many posts with this color green. I think if you don’t use it, you’ll always wish you had tried it. Love the use of it on this building…so unique.

    I have to check out that scene from the hangover. I don’t recall. I got another comments about green molding in the room Little Women. I’ll have to investigate this week.

    Was just browsing the stores on Greene Street about three weeks ago and noticed this green colored building too…maybe I noticed Kartell first and then the building! :-)
