Last Thing: Green(ery)

I am going to close out 2015 with one last favorite thing and it's something I've seen popping up in home decor pins, catalogs, books, and beyond for a while...

Greenery. 

Bright, leafy greens bring so much life and vibrance into any space. They are beyond easy to obtain and affordable. You can take a nice walk and gather some on your own (abiding laws of course!) or hit up your local floral shop; and they range in price from free to very inexpensive. But best of all, they are seasonal and will work in any and all decor styles.

Come along and see some of this broad's favorite examples...

As I always say, it starts with an idea or inspiring image. This classic Martinique wallpaper, iconic due to its placement in the Beverly Hills Hotel, is one for the ages. While it seems at first to be more summery than seasonal, the longer I look at it, the more versatile it becomes. Bold designers will make a statement with this in a powder room or small office. Those more design-risk averse (read: MOI) may choose to just frame this print or simply use it as inspiration and choose a safer choice, such as real greens that can be removed when one decides it's time to change a look.  

Speaking of the safer options, take a look at these inspiring images of fresh greens in the home...

Simple. Clean. Statement: Palm leaves in a tall, cylindrical vase will work in any home from traditional to uber modern.

With a large vase and leaves as the focal point, one doesn't need much else to style the coffee table. Less is more (and oh so lovely).

As a centerpiece, simple greens complemented with simple white flowers or baby's breath are timeless and go with any home style or party theme. You'll be seeing a lot more baby's breath in 2015. Mark my words.

At first glance, this looks very holiday-centric but I think with the right execution this could work all year long.

This look works for the holidays, but remove the ornaments and you have a look that works well through the entire winter season.

As if I needed another reason to love olives. Olive branches and leaves are such a sweet touch to a table or placesetting. I'd like to enjoy an extra dirty martini at this table.

More greens in simple vases of varying sizes. Can it get any easier??

Looking for a more permanent choice? I love this fiddle leaf fig plant art. And it will no doubt last longer than my poor plant that is currently on its last leg... errrr leaf. Poor Freya.

So, as you clean up your holiday decor this week or next, think of ways to freshen up your space with some pretty bright greens. Your home will thank you.
Cheers to 2015, my broads!
