Green Machine

My favorite color in the world is green and for whatever reason, I couldn’t really explain why (other than the fact that it feels “fresh” to me) until a few days ago.  A friend of mine from work, Leila Khalil’s wedding was featured in the Spring 2012 edition of Martha Stewart Weddings.  I had a feeling her favorite color was green after visiting her office, but in the eight page spread, she explained why she chose to incorporate its many hues into her absolutely stunning nuptials: “I LOVE the outdoors and all things GREEN.  The color symbolizes GROWTH and RENEWAL which is what weddings are all about.”  I don’t think she could have summed it up any more perfectly.  In the spirit of the great outdoors and this little blast of gorgeous summer we recently had in California (that has now seemed to have disappeared), here are a few of my favorite fresh green pieces this season.

    • So much in common! We’re going to have to sit down for a drink one of these days, lady :-) Her office is aaaamazing. Looks even better in person than it does on the screen. Such an inspiring space… it just made me want to get down to work.

  1. Loving your blog! And the photos you compiled together is lovely. Looks very Mod vintage, which is awesome. I dream about having those green stripes wallpaper decorating my kitchen walls :) – small GIVEAWAY on my blog

  2. Dear Megan, Every day I am astounded by the things we grow to love in common. That green is in the genes, that much I know. Your love and talent in all things floral, and all things decorating . . . I couldn’t be more thrilled. We will make a great team some day soon! Oh, and don’t forget the IPA’s! (Of which we will lift a few together in just 14 days!)
