Feeling a bit green today…not sure why. Maybe with the sun shining a bit in the office window lighting up the fichus tree and the fern below it casting strange and beautiful shadows on the floor and a glow of fresh green into the room…maybe that’s the reason. It’s almost spring-like. Anyway, feeling a bit green and found some lovely green decor to share today. Happy Monday! (uh, is there such a thing?) Green bathroom via Kagozi.com

You can’t go wrong with green in a kids room. The options are endless. Love this modern kid’s room design via House Maintain
I’ve had green in my kitchen, but nothing like this. Pale green with pale blue and ivory. The sky ceiling is to die for. Image by Carrie Russel for Washington Spaces, an online magazine that is out of business now, unfortunately.
Hope your feeling a bit green now, and that it’s a good thing.

Inspired by fruit today, I’ve tried to find some interesting grape decor for your apartment. In our old house we had a large trellised grape vine in the back yard. It’s not as romantic as it sounds. It was a huge maintenance undertaking if you wanted it to look nice and yield some beloved grapes for cooking, jams, or wine making. But it smelled wonderful in the summer, and offered a cozy shaded spot to sit under and read a book or play with the children. I have to say I miss it now. And I’m still in love with grape designs for home decor. This wine rack, sconces, and shelf would be delightful on a dining room wall. Via TooToo.com

I have a few bunches of frosted grape decorations that I keep with all the Christmas decor, but really they could be used for any holiday. My grapes look just like these which I found on flickr.
So don’t limit yourself with decorating choices. Think of grape decor for your apartment when wanting something new and homey feeling.

Quite an eclectic mix of style and antique wonders bleeds to the artistic in Liza Sherman’s apartment in Manhattan. The legendary antiques dealer is sharp, confident woman, possessing a quirkiness of a woman half her age. Her living space features an Italian daybed with burlap upholstery, a 1950s Hollywood style light, and a train rail cart as a cocktail table.

Her study features a French banner, a floating chair!, a 1940s French floor lamp and a vintage 1950s metal spring chair. Eclecticism at its finest. Of decor style Sherman says, “I don’t decorate. I see objects and furniture as shapes, lines, and forms,” and that, “Perfect surfaces don’t interest me.”
Sherman’s master bedroom displays a portrait by Liam Ritt, the fireplace mantle serves as a headboard for the bed, a dresser from India along with framed 1920s bathing suits.
