GREEN

Today I am further discussing Jenny's brilliant post from yesterday on colored matting over on Mrs. French. Love the idea and especially love this image of Kate Spade's home. I think it represents the idea perfectly.

The yellow, green and triangle floors make it so beautifully retro. Usually I don't like the 50's feel, but it doesn't surprise me that Kate knows how to do it right!

I read that post as well and was stunned that I've never really considered this before- I think it's gorgeous...and the emerald green, my favourite!

Going to read the post, but I adore the green matting...such a simple way to add a pop of color!!

I always send my artwork matted and it is either very colorful or pure white....
now can those "Spades" do anything less than pefect...
love the green matting.

I used to have coloured matting years ago and then I switched everything to white. Funny how things come back around - loving that perky green! :)
