The Rub of the Green

The rub of the green, being a British phrase meaning to have good luck fits this simple beach house well because it is lucky that green foliage rubs up against the house on all sides! The house seems to be decorated to highlight this feature, for it’s minimal neutral and white decor set the stage for the emerald views out the windows. The overall feeling of the space sums up summer, with it’s laid-back simplicity and leafy-green backdrop.

The dining room might be my favorite room. It almost feels like it is outside, or that it’s open-air on the left side thanks to the huge floor to ceiling window. The window and pendant light also accentuate the tall ceilings, and the little accents on the shelving keep things beachy.

In the vignette below, I am in love the the photograph at the top. I also dig the wicker theme continuation from the dining room to this scene, which is consistently bringing a warm tan to the palette of the house.

The kitchen might be the greatest display of green scenery in the whole house, with that same floor to ceiling window that we got a peek of in the dining room, combined with a window above the sink. The white kitchen cabinetry disappears into the walls and floor, creating a seamless transition from white to green.

The bedroom has a bit more punch to it, with some blue and yellow added to the scheme. Another fabulous photograph adorns the wall and these copper pendants are the bomb-diggity. Happy Monday!
