In the bleak days of winter, we all need some hope that spring is on the way, don’t we? I think a little green in the home is a good reminder of  ‘life after winter’!

These lovely shades of spring green paired with creamy white are so fresh, pretty and soothing.

    Love the green! I like the look of decorating with all one color and always forget about it when I’m changing things around. I need to try that when I decorate the Hoosier cabinet next time.
    Thanks for hosting!

    Just came across this blog today and am so glad I did! I have never thought about using green to brighten things up in winter because I am not naturally attracted to it as the main color in decorating, but this post opened my eyes! The shades used in your posts seems to make the rooms feel warmer without getting that drowsy, heavy look some warm shades do. Great post!

    I can’t wait to share this post with my mom. She loves light greens. The light green glass in the cabinet is to die for. How refreshing. I love it because it looks as fresh as spring!

    I love that kitchen – the first photo. It’s really beautiful. The marble on top looks fantastic.

    I’m hosting my first MckLinky on Sunday — best posts of the week. I hope you’ll all stop by and post your links!

    Melissa — Happy Belated B-Day. May all your birthday wishes comes true.

    This week I’m sure I have a feeling that we are all inspired by the brave people of Haiti who in under 20 seconds had their entire way of life turned upside down and smashed like a pancake on hot griddle. I’m sure that right about now that their patience is on edge and prayers are always needed as they dig out.

    The link that I posted today is titled “What’s for Dinner” and it includes a beautiful table setting from Rebecca Thuss and also a great video link from “America’s Test Kitchen” for making Beef Burgandy in a crock pot! Enjoy the show and the song by Kathryn Scott.
