Green: a'la Scarlett

Photography by Gridley + Graves for House Beautiful April 2008

Living room of his own 1820's cottage, designer Eric Lysdahl creates a memorable tableau of surprises. The green palette for one, is unexpected. The fantastic klismos inspired wing backs flanking the fireplace are his own design. Classic George Smith English arm sofa sports a striking green and gold stripe.

Now let's talk about those green velvet curtains. "A tongue-in-cheek ode to Scarlett O'Hara" describes Lysdahl. We all remember her ripping the curtains from the wall for fabric for a dress.

A closer view of the sofa and curtains. Witty and elegant at the same time this gorgeous green room is definitely one to remember!

I love the sofa and the pillows on the sofa. Nice bright yellow and black colors.
