Your Daily Greens...

I am not sure if it's the Winter blahs but I am craving greens!  Not only nutritionally but esthetically.
So in the new home that I am slowly moving into, I find myself wanting to add pops of green.  
The thing about green is there are so many fabulous shades!  One minute I want a true gray/green, then I want moss and when I see a great chartreuse I just smile!  Yes, it's a tough choice but here are some ways I started adding it to my decor below!
Kitchen counter!

Kitchen /Family room with touches on the coffee table and counter. There will be pillows to follow that also have touches of green throughout the fabric.

Below are some great fabrics and rooms that make it easy to be green!

Below are the pots that I have the biggest crush on and have two of them on my coffee table
I am hoping to acquire more!

Energize and Organize!

The one thing moving into a new house allows you is the chance to start over and get organized.  Now, I just have to get back to eating well and getting energized to take on the task!  I have tried to make it simple by starting with my pantry and linen closet. Both were bare spaces so either built ins or metal shelving were the choices.  Considering I have many other things to put my budget towards, I took the economical way out and chose industrial metal shelving.  This is easy to clean and really allows for lots of space to place things out of the way.

Clean space with floor to ceiling reasonably priced subway tile.


Racks with wheels for easy moving and cleaning!

Now for adding some of these goodies...


LOVE these!


Baskets are always a good idea!

Sometimes you need to see what your are storing so head over to Target for that!
Below what a clever way to stack your lids, need this one too.





Above racks found at Target.
Other places to find great metal shelving on wheels are Home Depot and

Great additions for shelving - Target!




I do have a section in my pantry that I will place a coffee station and some art work.
Considering the walls are tile any Command Strip set will come in handy!
If I get adventurous and decide to hang art work by chain from the ceiling then the kit below 
from Displays2Go will come in handy,


Now this guy is in the running for my coffee station.. stay tuned.

Do You Want The "Low Down"?

Well do you ?  I am talking about the resurgence of "low down" lounge chairs!  They were quite popular in the 70's and are everywhere in European design. 
 However, they are just starting to  make their way back into our design lives.  
I always loved a fireplace chair.  Like this  antique beauty below that was diminutive and sat low to the ground and hearth.  

The low fireside chairs I was used too, like this on 1st Dibs!

These new low lounge chairs below are sharp though...
