Irish Green with a Frenchy Theme

When decorating a room,
creating an inspiration board is a great way to help you
put together a mood for the look you're trying to achieve. 
Even though you most likely won't be able find everything
from your board for your room,
you can get a good start.

Green is not only the color we think of around St. Patricks day but,
it's also the ultimate color of nature. 
Green also acts as a soothing neutral for virtually every color scheme,
and it works in virtually every room of your home.  

I've collected photos of some things that I'd be delighted
to have in a room decorated in of green.
I've also added a mix of creamy whites
and rich wood tones as well!
This first gorgeous green velvet button tufted ottoman out in front
was the my first piece of inspiration! 
Ooo la la!

These gorgeous decorative pillows from
would accent the sofa above beautifully!

More green velvet on this frenchy chair with a lovely patterned design!

I found this wonderful print entitled "Vogue 1909"
on a website with tons of gorgeous free vintage prints.

This print also compliments the pillows above carrying on the peacock motiff...
Click "HERE" to find this print and many more!

How about a very cool and unique green velvet screen accented
with upholstery nail heads.

This pair of elegant vases would look wonderful on top
this very frenchy commode below!
Last but not least look at this incredible chandy with green beaded shades,
crystals, and hanging tassels!
Now after putting all my inspiration photos together I think you can really
get a feel for what this room would look like. 

I hope you had a little fun with this idea and will try it doing one of your own. 
I know I always seem to be dreaming of that next decorating project! 
This is a fun way to do it and not spend a dime!! lol!

Now go get your 

          GREEN on...
and have a GREAT St. Patty's day!!

This is a very creative post, Sherri. I never thought green could look so pretty! I have a lot of pastel green in my home, but I am loving the darker greens you have shown. I've always wanted to make an inspiration board!

Love this post! We are thinking alike this week. I've got green on my brain too. I'm swooning over those green tufted ottomans. Just found your lovely blog via Kim's party. I'm your newest follower and would be delighted for you to follow me back!

I love that amazing chandelier, it is a show stopper. I am following you and am glad you left me a comment, we share a love for the french style. Thankyou!

Sherrie, I am such a green girl too. My entire house used to be done in differing shades of green. It makes me feel alive. Now that the garden is mature, I have toned down the greens in my house, because of having so much green right out the door, but it was so hard to do.
Your images are gloriuos!
