    a favorite paint of mine is silver sage from Restoration Hardware. I've lived with it for ten years on the walls in three houses. I never thought of it as the new neutral, but I SO AGREE. Thanks for the great post!

    I like it! Our living room growing in the 80s was the color du jour, sea foam green. I swore I would never like the color again and now I do. All the shades you showed here are much less intense than the color I remember, maybe that's it. Regardless, yesterday I saw a closet painted this color and loved it, too. Hmmm. tomorrow's blog post?

    I love jade milkglass. Haven't started a collection of my own yet. I've started with a pistachio kitchen aide mixer 😉

    Love it! I have it in 3 rooms in my house with yellow accents. I call it sea glass green..sea foam sounds too much like bad wedding decor! Maybe my color has a little more blue in it but it is in the same family!!

    Love Jadeite and I have this color in my master bathroom mosaic glass tile. Love it. It reminds me of the ocean. You can see it here if you need a little more of this color.

    Sea foam green has always been one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing all those images! You might have inspired me to add a little more sea foam to my life down here in FL!

    Love it and we used it in our house and I'm not tired of it yet (rare). But I will admit I get nervous when it begins to approach a sagey-silvery green!! Your examples are perfect!

    My parents painted their front room (living room/parlor) and stairway sea foam green about 20+ years ago. It is still timeless–seriously. It still looks good–just a few accessories need to be updated:)–but the color stays (and WORKS!)

    I thought seafoam/jadeite green went out with Martha Stewart's tv set a decade ago? Which, of course, was right around the time I decided it was the BOMB. Don't get me wrong – all my walls are green, but I've been trying to wean myself off of the minty bubblegum stuff for going on 8 years now.

    I want to live in this story. The first image stole my heart. The rest are saved for my dream home in the deep south when my work is done in New York. Inspiring…

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
