Going Green

The other day I was looking for a blue and white ginger jar to go by my front entry, yet I kept gravitating toward a green and white Chinese porcelain piece. After my fifth time picking it up and putting back, I finally decided I had to have it. Recently, I have been attracted to all things green. There is something about it I find so fresh, timeless, and luxurious. See for yourself…

This is a sitting area deigned by Daniel Ramaualdez in Tory’s Burch’s penthouse at The Pierre Hotel. One of my all time favorite rooms. Love the juxtaposition of the blue and white ginger jars against the deep green walls, and the leopard pillows on the white sofas. Photo source: Pinterest
