sneak peek: best of green

by Amy Azzarito

Growing up, I greeted St. Patrick’s Day with more than a bit of apprehension. I was petrified of forgetting to wear green and spending the entire week black and blue from the resulting pinches. I decided to conquer my fear of green by hunting through the sneak peek archives to find green in homes. I’m loving green as a bright, poppy accent, and while I tend to prefer blues and grays, after looking through these photos, I don’t think I’d mind incorporating a bit of green into my own home. (FYI: We’re putting all sneak peek extras on Facebook, and there’s an extra album of green!) — Amy A.
