Green Velvet

The grassy green sheen of the velvets below are so classic and unexpected.  If you're in a climate where velvet can work in the summer time, then this might just be the hue for you!

That green upholstered bed is awesome!!! I have plans to DIY a headboard in a grassy/lime green color for my step daughters bedroom. I think I just might consider velvet!

I'm thinking that lime green or shades thereof would be the perfect summer handbag color. Totally go with everything! Great post, reminding us of colors not often featured.

I pretty much just love velvet in general, but green is so gorgeous...those two tufted beauties in the first picture are *DIVINE*...plus, with the two little ones around, it cleans up pretty darn good! (c:
