I'm a lifelong fan of the color green - in all of its variations. I've used green in all of my homes from waaaay back hunter green in the early 90's to apple, moss, olive, lime, chartreuse - and now emerald and mint.  One shade of green that is beautiful and timeless is celadon.  The name comes from the pottery and glazes that were produced in Asia well over a thousand years ago.

Although celadon is a shade of green, it's a grayed-down version that is quite neutral.

It's such a pretty backdrop for pinks and lavenders.

But wait - you can use celadon as an accent color too. I love it with the warm beiges in this living room designed by Michelle Nussbaumer.

And it looks fantastic with black and gold in this Michelle Nussbaumer entry.

Celadon is also perfect for outdoor use, since it's a color so readily found in nature.

It's also a great color choice for painted furniture. Amazing with the gold details, isn't it?

So what do you think?  Do you like this neutral version of green or do you prefer something more vibrant?
