Quick decisions don’t always look so well thought out, making us green with envy.
A recent post, Various Degrees of Green, featured kitchens where green was king. Various shades appeared on cabinets and walls, even a pea-green gingham ceiling. While the ceiling is often referred to as the fifth wall, the floor doesn’t often come into play as a major feature. It appears interior designer Melissa Ervin put the floor in this summer house kitchen first and foremost. In reality the Martin Senour “green leaf” paint was the solution when the new kitchen flooring did not match the old stained floors in the 1915 Victorian cottage. The saturated color was chosen to coordinate with the green fabrics used throughout the first floor. Fabric skirts, a striped rug and roman shades soften, while the vintage German botanical and metal rolling cart add weight. But there is no doubt that the star of this room is the glossy painted floor.
