Vintage Greens We Love

Like many of you, we are keen on bringing a relaxed, restful vibe into our homes. One way to do that is with color, and green is one of those colors. With the multitude of shades and tones, green pairs well with just about any decor. 

Of course, old and weathered vintage greens, with texture and history, just can't be beat. Combined with a variety of houseplants, green may become the color that ties each part of your living space together.

But Why Green?

Green is everywhere. As the most common color in the natural world, it's no wonder green has been a favorite for centuries. 

  • Green is calming, stress-relieving, and at the same time, invigorating.
  • Green stands for vitality, freshness, growth, wealth, balance, health, & youthfulness.
  • Green stands for eco-friendly and sustainable.
Green is no longer just a color. It's now the symbol of ecology and a verb. 

Incorporating green into your living space has never been easier. Whether you just LOVE the color green, or are making conscious decisions about how you spend your dollars to create a safer environment for us all, green is here to stay. (Bonus: green vintage treasures are plentiful out in the wild!)

Below are a few of our FAVORITE greens! Enjoy browsing!
