Decorating In Shades of Green

Befitting St. Patrick’s Day, today’s post shines the spotlight on decorating in shades of green.

Decorating in shades of green associates a natural beauty with a tangible balance that easily flows from space to space and shade to shade, complementing the core elements of design and décor.

History proves blue the color originally associated with St. Patrick’s Day under the reign of Henry the VIII who claimed Ireland a kingdom in 1542.

Henry VIII of England, by Hans Holbein

With the formal creation of a new Kingdom, Ireland was appointed a coat of arms in the design of golden harp on a blue background.

It wasn’t until years later as a result of the Irish Rebellion in 1798 that green officially took notability as the color associated with St. Patrick’s Day.

“What color should be seen
Where our fathers’ homes have been
But their own immortal Green?”

Here’s a bit of color trivia:

Emerald green, a brilliant blue-green color, dates back in popularity to the mid-1800s.

Inexpensive to manufacture and therefore cheap to purchase, emerald green was a popular choice of household paint, and was widely used for patterned wallpaper.

Soon it was discovered one of the main components of the paint was arsenic, a chemical element when in an inorganic state proves severe.

Damp spaces promoted the mold living in the wallpaper paste together with the arsenic to turn into a gas, creating a toxic environment.

It is believed Napoleon’s death in exile on St. Helena quite possibly was accelerated by his exposure to the Emerald green wallpaper decorating his favorite room.

Lemon Influenced Home Décor

Lemon influenced home décor pieces lend a bright and fresh energy to a space, showcasing natural beauty and inspiring a simple yet elegant design style.

Ten years ago dates the original publishing of this blog post.

After a quick revisit and the on-trend popularity of lemon influenced home décor accents and accessories, I feel a bright and fresh refresh is in order.

And We’re Back: Best Fall Decorating Colors

It is said the early bird catches the worm, and in the case of blogging, retail, and seasonal decorating, it proves to be so.

I began working on this best fall decorating colors blog post several weeks ago in anticipation of the visual loveliness soon to be revealed.

fall living room

Luxe. Daily

Being a natural born multitasker, I decided to throw a bit of WordPress dashboard housekeeping into the mix and perform a self-migration from Linux hosting to cPanel.

What was I thinking?

By the Sunday night of the Labor Day weekend things went South.  By Monday afternoon I had lost my site, my religion, and my patience.

My determination to DIY this particular project was to show myself I can do this.

Note to self:  You can not.

After two weeks, Dave the Builder convinced me to enlist the services of the guides at GoDaddy.

That was Tuesday, September 3.

This morning, thirteen days later, Places In The Home was still down.

Patience and politeness goes a long way in the pursuit of a positive result.  Alex, the super kind and knowledgeable GoDaddy guide, consulted a supervisor, and within one hour we’re back.

I want to thank each of you for your patience with this process.  For those of you who subscribe to Places In The Home, the testing testing 1,2,3 emails  delivered to your inbox should be all done.

Thanks again for your understanding and for not unfollowing me.

Fall or autumn.

What say you?

A fall vs. autumn FYI:

The term fall originated in English around the beginning of the 16th century.

Autumn gained its English prominence in the 18th century.

the-fife-arms-braemar-scotland-fireplace

The Fife Arms 

SW2838-polished-mahoganySherwin-Williams Polished Mahogany Sw 2838

Originally short for fall of the leaf or fall of the year, fall is the preferred term in the United States to best describe the season between summer and winter.

The term autumn was originally derived from the Old French word for autumn, automne, in the 15th or 16th century.

Autumn found favor in British English, however, fall has become prevalent in British publications.

Winter Blues

Gray days of February challenge one to find the silver lining of winter.

Bare, austere, and windswept conditions lead to extended periods of time spent indoors keeping company with the winter blues.
