Olive It

Have I mentioned how much I'm drawn to olive green these days? I have? Well too bad... because I have way more olive inspiration to share...
It's the perfect unexpected paint accent to a room - and surprisingly fresh! It can take on an element of glamour and feels almost feminine when paired with glamorous chandeliers and antiques.It's a wonderful neutral when used against stronger colors and patterns.And plays an alternate to rich browns and greys in darker spaces - love those pops of white with the caramel and gold!And if it's all a bit much for you... it makes a fantastically sophisticated accent to any room as well. Yes... olive it.
