God Didn't Make Little Green Apples...

Remember the song *Little Green Apples* from the 1970's? The gist of the song was stating what love really is. You can click here for the lyrics. Anyway, apple green can be an interesting color to decorate with, so here are some beautiful examples of it paired with caramel. My inspiration? God. The One who made the little green apples and the gorgeous butterfly featured on the last photo. Anyone have apple green in their home? Anyone a Roger Miller fan or apple fan? Photos: Country Living; Lamp online; Caramel Apples; Outdoor Dinner photo by Meg Smith Photography; Butterfly by Pixdaus.

Oh yes, I remember that song well... and it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summer time (if that's correct - just going on my memory!). I'm really drawn to apple green, more so with each year it seems. Lovely inspiration photos! Enjoy your weekend. -Tammy

What a beautiful room and what a beautiful butterfly. Did God not give us some beautiful things? Nature is so wonderful.

Karen said...

Very pretty colors!

Jemm said...

I like the pairing in the photos you shared. It looks very put together. My house has this old sandblasted pine paneling that is kind of an apple green, not really that modern though. It was put in in the 60's and is very textureed and just....UGH! It is on the walls and ceiling. It's overwhelming!!!! I've been thinking of painting it...but I don't want to make it worse, plus it would be a HUGE job. I really just want to rip it out and put in dry wall. It doesn't go with our old house at all. Oh, well :)

Janean, I have always loved this color...LOVE the ottoman in the first pic, I would love to have that! :D

Dianna said...

I REALLY like the herb wreath! That would be so cool to have in the kitchen! Thanks for leaving me a note last evening...means a lot. :)

Brenda said...

Your apple greens are very pretty. I am more of a mossy or celery green type of person. I guess you could say most of my colors have a grey or black tint to them. But I do love color. I think it is because I cannot wear the brights that I do not put too many in my home decor. Exception. Red is my favorite color by far. Came over to thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Love comments!

Celestial Charms said...

Thanks for coming for a visit to my blog. You have a mighty fine one here. Brown and green are an interesting color combo. Not one we see often, but very interesting nonetheless. Thanks for sharing these beautiful images.

I love the apple green! But sadly I don't have any in our home. We do, however have the walls of our living room, dining room and hallways painted in a color that is similar, just a little muddier. It is called 'crocodile tears', and I love it.

My sons room is a green, but it's more khaki/army/praire-grass green. I have green depression glass dishes, and green handled utensils in the kitchen, and green quilts on beds. One of the quilts would probably be a good match with your "green apple" color.

beautiful..I always liked that song...

All of the images are beautiful though certainly the most awe inspiring...the butterfly, truly a gift from above! ~ Angela

I'm not a big fan of green, having lived in too many military houses that were painted 'soothing' pale green. I do, however, love apple green, and have a splash of it in the draperies here - so fresh!

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

I love that combination - and OH! that butterfly! I use a lot of green at home - a lot more than I realized when I started to list it - my dining room is a soft sage green, and my living room chairs have a little apple green in it, as does the window treatment. The chairs in the sunroom are upholstered in green. The guest bath is pear green, and the den was just painted green too, with green in the window treatments as well. That is a lot of green. I think I'll have to do a green post myself!
Best,
Stephanie

i love the butterfly, it is amazing what our Lord has provided for us!
I think that green is my favorite color for my home, there are so many different shades! and yes I do have granny smith apples in my fridge! I make a great salad with spring greens, walnuts, blue cheese crumbles, granny smith apples and blush wine vinagrette.

Alvocado being a green color. Remember the washing machine & dryer? That would so be stylish today! You think? he~he!

SueWis said...

Love that shade of green and it definitely looks good with caramel!

Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio said...

Yes, love apple green. I don't decorate with it in general, but it is a lovely color for spring. Have done some sewing with it.
Used to have my whole house decorated in Apples....red ones that is, back in the 80's and early nineties. Still love a bowl of apples in my kitchen...red and green.

Keetha Broyles said...

I'm still waiting for your explanation of "God didn't make little green apples" 'cause I could have SWORN He did!

Marcia said...

Thank you for visiting my blog. I made sure I told Alexandra you like the photo. She was so happy. And yes, I do have both green and brown in my house (hallway and laundry room). I think they complement each other extremely well. Your blog is wonderful:) Have a great weekend!

Blondie's Journal said...

Beautiful greens. I love how 'green apple' is so popular as well as aqua. They even look well together!

I am a big fan of apple green! Most of our walls were once a subdued shade of apple, and I'm getting ready to redo our master bedroom in gray with apple accents. I even went dressed to a Halloween party as Granny Smith once, but that's a story for another day :) Oh, and thanks for your sweet comments about my Petite Pickers post. As a rookie blogger, that made my DAY:)

Simply blessed,
Tricia
