  1. I love these gorgeous rooms. Ironically, I just did this exact thing in my bedroom and am so happy with the results. Thanks for the inspiration, and in my case, validation!

  2. Love that green kitchen! When we bought our home 30 years ago I painted the master bedroom deep green and used Laura Ashely bed lines and drapes. So pretty. Loving all the deep colors coming back in style.

  3. One of my favorite colors. In the first townhouse I owned I painted the guest bedroom walls dark forest green, kept the trim white and purchased white comforters with splashy red and green flowers. I think it is still one of the favorite rooms I’ve ever decorated.

  4. I like the idea of 1 dark green wall all four I’m not sure. I looked at the “Decorating with Green and Pink” and the first picture was so pretty and fresh. I don’t really think of it as preppy, just soft and welcoming.
