Beautiful Ideas for Green Decor

/ /

Are you jumping on the trend and looking for some ideas for green decor? Lately I’ve really been crushing on the color green.

I’ve been adding small doses of green decor around the house and love the organic vibe it provides. And green is a wonderful color to accent with any time of the year. It’s somewhat of a neutral color and blends with so many different things.

30 Ideas for Green Decor

Ideas for Green Decor in the Kitchen and Dining Room

Green Dishes and Glasses

It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a dish hoarder and I happen to have a few green pieces in my collection. The green goblets add a nice pop of green to our table at Christmas. They belonged to my mother-in-law and we love to use them during the holidays. (Similar goblets found HERE.)

These little green cabbage bowls are nice accents for spring and summer. They’re perfect for fruit, ice cream, or cereal. (You can find similar ones HERE.) And it’s such an easy idea for decorating with green.

If you prefer a softer shade of green, you’ll love the idea of adding green decor to your kitchen with vintage Jadeite. It was popular in the 1940’s and 50’s and has a pretty mint green color.

Similarly, vintage depression glass is another great idea for adding green decor to your home. A few pieces tucked inside a china hutch or on a shelf give the perfect amount of green to any little area.

Adding green decor with preserved boxwood

I never met a boxwood wreath I didn’t like. And they’re such a pretty, rich shade of green. They can be used as wall hangings, table decor, or on cabinet doors as accents. (Wreath found HERE.)

And little boxwood topiaries are great as shelf or table decor. They add just the right amount of green to any space. (Found HERE.)

Adding green decor with Plants

Green Vintage Tin Tiles

A couple of years ago at the Vintage Market Days fair I found these fun little vintage tin ceiling tiles. They fit perfectly underneath our living room mantel and add a fun pop of green to the area.

  1. Angie, you are so speaking my language. I love anything from nature and feel like you can never go wrong with green. It's a nice neutral when you are tired of white or gray and just want a little color. On top of that I also love that you collect vintage pieces and display them in your home. Botanical prints are a favorite of mine and I'm definitely pinning this for future use.

  2. Right now, just a little green is indoors… A little in some faux rose and peony stems, a couple of plastic bins for storage, and some teal green drinking cups in our kitchen. However, that being said, Angie, my daughter absolutely LOVES green so I've sent her this post in an email. 🙂 She has the cutest green armchair that she uses in her apartment bedroom to sit in and read, or to work at her computer desk. Mom is always finding green kitchenware to send her… 😉

    Fun post and happily pinned to several of my Pinterest boards for you and our readers,
    Hugs,
    Barb 🙂
