Bringing The Outdoors In!

One of my favorite Farrow & Ball -Ringwold

It’s cold, rainy, and miserable here in Nashville! Since I been talking about gardening throughout all last week and with the weather being quite dreadful outside I thought I would share a few of my personal favorite pictures of bringing the outdoors into your home. One my favorite color combinations is green and white.

In our first house, the dining room had a green and white color combination. Believe it or not, it was all Laura Ashley—wallpaper, window treatment, and fabric. I have always liked a hint of the English Country side, although on a side note—I would absolutely in a million years never be caught wearing it! The wallpaper was green and white striped (always fan of stripes); my father-in-law was kind enough to help us hang it. To help out, the hubby was his assistant (the paster). Unfortunately hanging wallpaper is one talent hubby has never acquired (me neither)! The dining room chairs that my in-laws kindly gave us were redone in green and white check. And the window treatment no doubt was a floral which I still have somewhere in storage.

For some reason, my Earl Gray tea always seemed to taste better in there!

I've always loved this room!

As you can see I've had this for sometime! I had visions of the wallpaper in our Charleston house! Cole & Son's Paradise Tree

Currently, From Yours Truly- I love it especially on days like today!
