When I was growing up, my mom had a knack for making every holiday and new season feel special. It was never anything too elaborate. A wreath on the front door, a colorful tablecloth, or small doses of color to coordinate with the season throughout our small house. There are times when I feel like doing so is just another item on my to-do list, but it always seemed that it made my mom happy. Being a mom is rewarding, but it's also stressful, worrisome and sometimes lonely. As a mom who has worked full time, stayed home full time and now works from home, I know these little touches can mean a lot. I realize that these details aren't just for my kids and guests, but for me too. They break up the monotony that seems to set in during winter and sets the tone for something new and fresh to look forward to.
If you feel unsure about how to do this, color is an easy way to start. It can do so much to affect and enhance our moods and can be a lot easier to live with and transition than specific holiday decor.
Since today is March 1st, I thought it would be fun to share a"Color of the Month" post with you. Throughout the month I'll share inspiration of the color here on the blog and on my social media accounts, I'll share different palettes using that color, and offer advice and tips on how to work with it.
Since spring is on the horizon, it's March and I'm Irish, this month's color is green! People seem to either love or hate green, but personally, I've always been a fan. Next to blue, it's my favorite. I've always found it fresh, cheerful, and easy to work with. Below are some inspiring designs I've found or created to get you thinking green! Monday, I'll be sharing my first of a few palettes with you and tips on how to use them in real life. Be sure to look for my special offer at the end of this post!
1. An inspiration board I created for a client who will be going for a dark, moody den makeover.
2. Preppy Green Rooms
3. Timeless Green Looks
4. Earthy Greens

Saturday morning I'll have a new post ready for you with another take on "green" design. In the meantime, have a great end to your week!
