If there is one thing I love about 2012 thus far, it's that color is everywhere; bright, bold color, that is. House Beautiful, one of my favorite interior design, and home decor publications is always chalk full of inspiration, and in the month of March they're sharing ways you can make your home green with envy. From green walls to green decor and accessories, this is an issue not to be missed!

“As the pages of our March issue attest, there is an astonishing spectrum in green, from citrus to aquamarine,” says House Beautiful Editor in Chief Newell Turner. “Green has many moods—romantic, happy, calming, mysterious—and there is no other color more natural. Before spring arrives, I find myself starved for color, especially all the greens. Who isn’t amazed when trees explode in every shade imaginable?”
