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.

A Curated Look :: Houston Home

My favorite interior last week featured in Matchbook Magazine’s latest issue, was the beautiful home of Bailey and Pete McCarthy. After briefly living in Chicago and Austin, the husband and wife interior design team behind Biscuit Home and the Peppermint Bliss blog settled in Houston. For the home’s design, the couple incorporated  items they’ve been collecting as they moved from city to city. Their curated look is inviting, multi-layered and has a wonderful mix of period styles.

I will say I have never considered my style fearless. My style has evolved over the years and I think it has gotten better and more refined, but it really is just my style. I am flattered that people like it but I am always a little amused when the work is called “fearless”- like maybe I should be afraid of putting it out there because it is testing the boundaries of good taste? Whoopsies. – Bailey McCarthy
