Spring is in the air and that means I’m thinking about green!

Plants, books, fabrics, accessories, paint, lighting, vegetables or fruit, it doesn’t really matter what it is, I just think adding a bit of green makes a room come to life. This time of year I especially love a fresh green and white color scheme. At my house I find myself looking around for green books to stack here and there, and for other green accessories to bring out. And of course, I always have plants!

Have you ever noticed that in magazines every room has something organic in it, like a plant or bouquet? I love bouquets but I don’t love how short-lived they are. Years ago I asked my husband to bring me a plant instead of cut flowers because it would last longer (ha, I guess my practical side won out of the romantic side)! I really do love plants in a room. Yeah, I know, sometimes they die. But they don’t always (and if they do, they usually long outlast a bouquet!), so it’s worth experimenting to see what does well in your home!

I can take photos of my plants and show you in a separate post soon, I think I’ve found quite a few that seem to tolerate my black thumb.
