Don't forget your green!

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

It's almost St. Patrick's Day! I've been packing up my apartment for the move and I just came across my little Irish flags that I took to the annual green river dying in Chicago a few years ago. I'm going to put one on my front door to show my proud Irish heritage. In the meantime, I've found a new place to live! I only signed the lease yesterday but I'm already making lots of plans on how the new abode will be decorated. I've decided to go with lime green as the accent color in the kitchen! I've been browsing the net for items that would add that punch of color, here are a few of my favorites:

What kitchen would be complete without one of these? Well, my kitchen will just have to be incomplete for a while, because I don't have one...But I'd take this one in "pear" any day!

Green AND polda dots! I love these Ikat kitchen towels, from Crate and Barrel.

I bought two of these cool pint glasses at Powell's Books during my recent trip to Portland. They were actually the color inspiration for my new kitchen! I love the retro font.

Tiny little ceramic collander from Anthropologie. Too cute.

I just watched "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill" and was instantly reminded of the flock of parrots when I saw these sweet vintage salt and pepper shakers on Etsy. They aren't exactly lime green, but I think a little shade variation is good.

I love the retro/modern screenprints from BeeThings on Etsy. This print would look so cute framed in an eat-in area in the kitchen.

Well, those are my picks. Don't get pinched tomorrow! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
