Decorating Idea Using Charteuse Lime Green, Tree Art by Schulman
House Beautiful featured interior decorator Jamie Drake who decorated this Manhattan apartment. His design scheme combines multiple hues of green to create a palette of "cool, unapproachable beauty." 

In a guest bedroom, Drake upholstered an Avery Boardman twin bed with two emphatic Bergamo prints: Hyde Park for the seat and Rosegarten for the cushions. The throw pillows are in Schumacher's Zenyatta Mondatta. The George Smith Norris Chair is in Palmarola by Pierre Frey, the walnut-and-brass end tables from Buck House. Drake's original interior design did not include this artwork. Artwork has been added digitally to give you inspiration of how this art would look in your own home.

Want to steal this look?
I did all the hunt work for you to help you discover how you can steal this look for your own home with handcrafted and vintage finds on etsy. Swap the George Norris chair for a mid-century look by UpcycledHome. This clever shop has the Schumacher's divine Zenyatta Mondatta fabric in the Peacock colorway. Another option is lunarloungedesign whose shop has an olive lounge chair. Combine that with a decorative pillow by habitationBoheme. The chic little pillow cover is also made with the Schumacher fabric in peacock with the pattern going vertically. Another fantastic find is this vintage brass table from thrallgirl. Excellent price for an an incredible value. Steal the table before she raises the price. At $225, this table won't be available for long. Although there are a lot of vintage end tables available on etsy, you really need a matched set. Go for a handcrafted pair. A perfect place for a lamp and a book, with a good sized drawer for storage the walnut end table by ZurnDesign  has the futuristic design to complement your mid-century design scheme. Use two to bookend your sofa, or have one beside your favorite chair.They even have a matching credenza. Finally, since accessories always make a room, don't forget a little ceramic vintage lime green bowl offered by WESTALFREDSTREET
