Green Southern Living - part 2

Mossy Green Kitchen 

A narrow kitchen island provides ample room to work without taking up too much floor space. A soft, moss green on the cabinets and island feels both casual and inviting, and two pendant lamps illuminate the workspace.

Mastered Bedroom

A custom headboard is the star of this master bedroom. The room’s colors are toned down, but the mix of patterns definitely isn’t. An animal-print rug and a floral fabric on the headboard are an unexpected pairing, but the effect feels natural in this retreat.

Swinging Space

This comfy porch swing and daybed turns this South Carolina porch into a soothing retreat. A cool blue-green cushion and throw pillows reflect the coastal style of this home.

Smart Upgrades

 Spruce up a boring dining room with an area rug, bordered curtain panels, and slip covered slipper chairs. Make them your own with a monogram.

Tons of Texture

In this guest room, texture casts a charming, cozy tone. The grass cloth wall covering adds color, and a small print brings warmth to the small area. Add interest to an antique bed with interesting patterns on the bed skirt and a bolster pillow.

Comfy Cottage

A bar with black stools opens the kitchen to the comfy living room. Fresh green cabinets, accent pillows with natural themes, and fabrics with interesting textures make this living room a comfortable space to enjoy the company of friends and family.

New Look

Dazzle dinner guests with a silver-and-sage tableau that embraces both old and new. Whimsical print napkins, colorful ribbon, and a low flower arrangement bring color and interest to the space while still letting guests chat.

Find Sanctuary

The wall-to-wall headboard, upholstered in a subtle striped fabric, adds a sense of luxury to the room, and the skirted bedside table has a feminine flair. A row of casement windows above the bed, along with a pair of French doors leading outside, allow sunlight to stream into the room.

Color and Whimsy

Don't forget to decorate with the same care you would your living room. Soothing green adds a punch of personality to built-in storage, and whimsical pictures hung behind the sink help this mudroom feel like a room rather than just a workspace.

Natural Oats

Vibrant green walls play well against the oatmeal carpet and organic, natural-colored bedding. Warm black finishes on the antique dresser and chalkboard provide color balance and aged texture.

Girly Chic

Shades of pink and green make this room an unmistakable haven for a young girl. The soft green bed frame was a family heirloom that got a fresh coast of pastel paint. All new, modern light fixtures and a shag rug bring this fantasy bedroom into the 21st century.

Spot Color

The bright ikat of the daybed's canopy set against yellow walls with an acrylic coffee table makes for a colorful and chic kids' room sure to spike children's creativity.

Family Control Center

This hardworking room keeps the family organized with space for all household tasks from laundry to flower arranging to pet care. The keys to this utility room's collected look are the coordinated desk and bulletin board, each with ample space to spread out and get organized.

Lofty Kids' Room

The top level of this home was just the right place for a children's loft and playroom. Train-style bunks built into the eaves create intimate little spaces. The playful bedding adds color and a bit of personality.
