st.patrick's day pastels...







"St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming
winter's dreams into summer's magic." - Adrienne Cook

Well first off, Happy St.Patrick's Day! I've been looking forward to doing a pretty green post in theme with today, but rather than go with the usual shades of shamrocks and leprechauns, i'm loving a lighter, pastel green. It just feels much more Spring-appropriate, with whites and just a hint of colour. I'm loving the whitewashed walls in the first bedroom with those gorgeous wrought-iron beds and i'm still on the lookout for a perfectly tall topiary tree. Just a little green goes a long way, no? Although, I expect to see a lot of it today!

Hope your day comes with a little Irish luck...

Absolutely gorgeous pictures! I love the fourth photo with the light topiary. It's so peaceful and pretty. Sure beats wearing those dollar store vibrant green St. Patrick's day sunglasses. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
