simply color: eleanor grosch

The colors in Eleanor Grosch’s house are both practical and fun. I’ve become such a fan of having two stripes of color on the walls, and she couldn’t have picked a lovelier combo than the mint and moss greens. The turquoise and yellow walls in the kitchen and bedroom are so cheerful, and with red and brown accents, this home = perfection. —Lauren

    Love these rooms! Are the pillowcases on the sofa a sheet pattern? If so, where are they available?

    I love the photos and colors you choose for your column. So inspiring! How do you get the PMS colors; using some kind of converter-widget-thingy, or by old-fashioned eyeballing?

  9. Julie- The tree print cushion is from Urban by Julia Rothman.

    Virginia- Old-fashioned eyeballing is my style! I’m too much of a perfectionist to trust a widget with colors.

    I have been looking for a bird sculpture like the one on your wall for years? Where did you get?
