It is believed the color first associated with St. Patrick was a shade of light blue.  The color connection between the St. Patrick’s Day and the color green dates back to the 17th c to what some perceive as an association to the lush landscape of the Emerald Isle.

I am excited for the debut of the green Ball American Heritage Collection jars. With spring decor inspiration flowing, these most definitely will be on the gotta have it list.  Fresh and green takes on a whole new meaning.

Glamour is served and served well in this Kelly Wearstler designed kitchen in the home of Cameron Diaz.  Lacquered in a custom green paint, the look perfectly proves the point that not all kitchens are meant for white cabinets.

Interiors that incorporate the color green as the main palette choice or as a well appointed accent color will invariably catch the eye. Reason? The color green associates a natural beauty with a tangible balance. It’s a color that easily flows from space to space, shade to shade with the base elements of classic design and decor.
