As a designer I’m always seeking out chic vintage furnishings and home decor. My go to destinations include flea markets, estate sales and craigslist. However, the process of scouring through items can be time consuming, hit or miss and downright frustrating (is it the real deal? is the seller trustworthy?).  And of course this is simply the buying side, not the selling side of vintage furnishings! But fortunately there is now Chairish, an online marketplace where design lovers can exchange gently used, pre-owned furniture and decor directly with one another. They make the whole buying, selling and shipping process a breeze. In addition, the experts at Chairish hand-select and curate the collections of items on the site, so you know you’re getting quality vintage and designer decor that is accurately represented. Love!

The folks at Chairish asked me to select a favorite rug from various styles that were provided and then create a styleboard designed around that pattern and color scheme using furnishings from their site. I selected a beautiful grass green Turkish rug as the starting point for a vintage chic home office design. The process of sourcing and searching for items on Chairish was fast and easy. I could even keep track of my favorites along the way! The result is fresh, airy and of course chic.

Color Crush: Pinch of Green

Green. It’s symbolic for growth, nature and money. It’s also the color most associated with Ireland. Known as the “Emerald Isle” for it’s lush countryside, the Irish have been celebrating their patron saint, Patrick for centuries every March 17th. On this day, wearing a shamrock or the color green became tradition.

There is an Irish saying, “there are only two kinds of people in the world, the Irish and those who wish they were.” Today as the world celebrates St. Patrick’s Day, we can all be a little Irish… that is if you wear green.

In spirit of St. Patrick and my Irish grandfather, I’m sharing a few interiors with a pinch of green.

The “it” Color for 2013 :: Emerald Green

The hue most associated with nature, harmony and growth, is ramping up for a big year because last week Pantone announcement that Emerald Green (17-5641)  is the official color of 2013. The jewel-tone is quite a contrast from last year’s energizing, Tangerine Tango.

Emerald Green’s a beautiful hue for interiors and you can’t go wrong pairing it with blues, oranges and yellows. Incorporate this harmonious color in your home by adding an emerald textiles – upholstered chairs, area rugs or throw pillows. Use the color as an accent by painting dining chairs, a chest of drawers or the front door in this rejuvenating hue? – Benjamin Moore’s Emerald Isle is a close match.

“The human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”
