When writing last week’s post on French inspiration in the kitchen, I kept running across images of one of my favorite restaurants in D.C.: Le Diplomate. Everything about this French restaurant in Logan Circle is gorgeous, from the exterior with bright red awnings and patio with cheery yellow chairs to the bathrooms. But my favorite part of the restaurant is the sunny atrium with striking green tiles on the walls.
And that’s when it hit me: Green is really underrated in the home. And I’m really feeling it.
I usually lean toward shades of blue when I want to add color to the home, with the occasional pop of yellow or red. But I love the unexpectedly fresh look of green, and I think it may be just the accent we need in the Barton kitchen.
Not convinced? Here are a few more photos to prove my point:
