At first thought, mentioning dark green paint and brass hardware brings back memories of my first home…this is back in the early 80’s. They both reflected a very traditional look at the time, on par with the popularity of Ralph Lauren Home. Fast forward and today brass accents look modern and dark green looks fresh. It’s all in the styling, of course. They could easily slip back to their traditional aesthetic, but with the clean lines we’re seeing on brass pieces and the interesting pairings with deep shades of green, they’ve hit a new mark that is very appealing. I love how green is used in the top kitchen on shaker cabinetry popped with white marble. And how gorgeous are those green walls, with a hint of teal, or popped with white? I’m trying to figure out a way to add this color into my current all white home. A powder room? The bedroom? It’s got me thinking.
