For The Love of Green



Hello Friends! I'm so excited to be a part of this awesome blog hop hosted by my dear friend Amber at Follow The Yellow Brick Home! Thank you so much Amber for putting this together!

If you are just coming over from Kristin's gorgeous log home at White Arrows Home, Welcome to Welch House! I hope you are able to find some inspiration here!

With Saint Patricks day approaching, a lot of people are bringing out their green decor. I thought I would share with you how I incorporate green into my kitchen all year long, as it is one of my very favorite colors.

I have a very special green cabinet that was once used by my Great-parents and my Grandparents as a place to store their canning jars. It sat lonely and unused until I rescued it from my parent's basement about 8 years ago. 


I absolutely love the original green paint and the patina that it has. I painted the tongue and groove walls a historic pale pink.


I don't do a lot of St. Patrick's day decor, but seeing as I am Irish, I decided to make a cute Vintage Irish couple for my cabinet.


I found these darling printables at The Graphics Fairy. After I printed them out, I stabilized them with  foam board, and ta-da!!! They are absolutely festive and elegant.


I recently found the green rimmed vintage plates at an estate sale and the depression era green glassware  I found at a garage sale! I love the intricate details on the glassware, and they look pretty as vases for my fresh roses.


The embroidered lace panel I ordered from off of Etsy. It came from France and I love how it dressed up my cabinet.


The skirt for my cabinet is made out of a sheet from Target. The sheets are pink and white striped and are from the Simply Shabby Chic Collection. I think it adds a sweet touch to the cabinet.


 Just beyond the green cabinet, is a small hallway that connects the dining room to the kitchen and also leads to a powder room. I chose a beautiful green French style wallpaper for this space. I love the gorgeous florals and exotic birds that are printed on it.


I fell in love with this wallpaper as soon as I saw it! It looks beautiful in this small cozy space.


To open up the space a bit, I hung an ornate gold mirror which is also a thrift store find! Interesting fact..when I purchased the mirror, the employees at the thrift store told me that it had been donated by the local funeral home! Well that didn't stop me from taking this beauty home!


Our kitchen is also home to a gorgeous green antique stove! This stove has been with me through several decor changes and three homes! I don't cook on it, I use it only for decoration.


The last several years its been a tradition for my little boy Delaine and I to make Leprechaun cupcakes! He is always is excited to bake these!


His very favorite part is the vintage Leprechaun men on top!


We always add colorful sprinkles.


These adorable cupcakes don't last too long around here!


A never before seen view of my kitchen...to the left is the dining nook. The kitchen is a very difficult area for me to photograph, so thats why I don't show it very often!


I hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit more of my home and have come to love the many different shades of green as much as I do!


Thank you so much for visiting!

  17. Oh, wow, I'm head over hills for all the green shades in your home! Those printables are indeed elegant and so cute and the cupcakes seem so delicious, but also like beautiful pieces of art. Love the antique and sophisticated vibe that makes your home so breathtaking! The French-style wallpaper and the lovely, golden mirror go so well together and make the small, cozy corner look like a heavenly oasis. Thank you so much for sharing this, I really enjoyed it!

  19. That cabinet is a real treasure and you've filled it beautifully. I love the French lace! Love the stove as well. Can you believe I have on like it in my garden. It was given to me by a friend years ago. We moved it from our previous home. I love it as an accent, but now a tree has grown so much it's almost buried it. :(
    hugs,
    Jann
