Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!  I’m excited to have no plans this weekend .  I’m still a little exhausted from last weekend, which explains what a bad blogger I’ve been this week.  I hope you enjoy these pretties and have a great weekend!

Malachite

It probably comes as no surprise to anyone that I love malachite.  Mostly because it’s my favorite shade of Emerald green.  But I also love that vein-y marble look.   People seem to be using it in all sorts of ways.  Here are a few pictures I’ve gathered of the many different uses of a [faux] malachite finish – everything from iphone covers to wallpaper!  What do yall think?  Do you love malachite too?

Fabulous Friday & a favorite quote

I had so much fun on Trendy Tuesday so I decided to make today Fabulous Friday… I hope y’all enjoy these pretties as much as I do!

But first I wanted to share a quote from Audrey Hepburn.  I found this quote the other day and it helped me put things in perspective.  Maybe it’s just me but I hope y’all enjoy it too.

“My greatest victory has been to live with myself,

to accept my shortcomings.

I’m a long way from the human I’d like to be,

but I’ve decided I’m not so bad after all.”

– Audrey Hepburn

Now that I’ve revealed to y’all what I cheese ball I can be sometimes, how about some pretty pictures?

This picture makes me miss my parents’ dogs Gus and Ann :(  …

Although, they are not golden retrievers, they’re chocolate labs.

Picture this… the cutest nursery

It seems like so many people are getting pregnant at the exact same time… now.  We’re literally working on three different nurseries at the moment.  But I had to share with you the scheme for the cutest nursery ever.

Elephants + blue & white + kelly green accents = ADORABLENESS

Starting with Lulu DK for Schumacher “Parade” fabric

Add lots and LOTS of Brunschwig & Fils’ “Les Touches” in Blue

An accent wall featuring a blue and white trellis wallpaper… Probably one of these adorable Thibaut designs…

The amazing Madeline Weinrib’s Ziggy chevron rug in what color?  You guessed it, BLUE.

Then top it off with (my favorite part, of course) Kelly Green accents like this Shades of Light bamboo floor lamp

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

As we all know by now, green is my absolute favorite color.  And Emerald green is the color of the year.  So St. Patrick’s Day is extra special…  I hope everyone drinks some green beer today!!!  Happy St. Patty’s Day!

St. Patrick's Day, summerfield

A makeover!

Summerfield has a new look!  What do y’all think?  It was sort of an impulsive decision that I made on Friday.  I’ve had the thought in the back of my head for a while, but I decided to go ahead and make a change – it has been a year after all!  Hopefully there will be more pretty changes for Summerfield in the near future.  Any feedback is appreciated, as always :)  Let me remind you that I am definitely not a computer/blogging expert despite the fact that I’ve had this blog for over a year.  There are so many things I still don’t know how to do.  And I’ve had no help from anyone else… except for one of the computer technicians that works with my dad (he kindly helped me with the picture logo – it took him no time at all to do what I had been trying to figure out for days).

And now for a photo of the day.

Meg Braff does Green

One of my all time favorite houses is featured in House Beautiful’s May 2012 “All About Green” issue (another green favorite – shocking!).  The New York home is decorated by Meg Braff.  So you can see why it is one of my favorites.  I could go on forever about it but here are some pictures:

Literally love every inch of the bedroom above.  Especially the chest, chair, lamps, everything…

If I didn’t want a white kitchen, I’d want a green kitchen, of course.  And notice the brass hardware.  It wouldn’t be as pretty without the adorable chandelier and oriental rugs either.  But the green is what makes it, obviously :)

Green grasscloth? Yes, please!

Those are the same pillow shams I have on my bed – except mine are green, of course!

The dining room is kind of dark but I like it!  Walls are upholstered in green velvet.

Favorite thing about the picture above?  The mustard leather chair.  It’s not every day you see a mustard yellow leather wing chair ;)

Vines

This post is probably completely out of season. But like I’ve said a thousand times: I do not have a green thumb. So it really doesn’t matter what I say about growing plants, flowers, or even vines.  My mom has two vines in her back yard that are beginning to grow up the back of the house and they look great!  My great aunt gave them to her (she has a major green thumb).  I love the way a house looks with a vine growing up the exterior.  Maybe my mom will send me some pictures of her vines to share on the blog :)
