I know, I know, seafoam green? Jen, have you lost your mind? Have faith, this is not the Golden Girls seafoam green of the 80s!
This is a refreshing, soothing, perfect-for-the-beach-and-beyond hue that is meant for long lazy days of summer. Pull up your lounge chair, pour yourself a tasty beverage and let me show you what I mean.
Seafoam green crush #1: Dera Midi Dress
I must admit, this was where my crush started. This dress is so great -comfy, stylish, effortless. It hits all the must-haves in summer apparel. And I loved that the color was soft, beachy and unique.
Seafoam Green Crush #2: Heath Ceramics' Quilt Patterned Wallpaper in Celadon
It will come as no surprise that there is a beautiful, bold wallpaper from Hygge and West on this list. But really, can you blame me? The lovely shade of green with gold accents? To me that says fun times in Miami.
Seafoam Green Crush #3: Deco Convertible Sofa
Who wouldn't love this super functional sofa from Urban Outfitters? It doubles as a place to sleep for visitors. And, fear not, if you worry that this is tending a bit towards the dreaded "sage green", change its look entirely with a few decorative pillows and a throw.
Seafoam Green Crush #4: Organic Brighton Matelasse Bedding
Why should the living room have all the fun? Banish grey bedding to the closet until fall and carry over the easy breezy green into your bedroom with this duvet.
Seafoam Green Crush #5: Cleo B Eva Woven Heels
I am such a fan of shoes from Anthropologie. Unique shoes with that little extra "oomph". Not shoes you see everywhere. Case in point: these beauties. A little bit retro, a lot polished. To let these babies shine on their own, I suggest having them be the only green item (of this hue) that you wear. Imagine a summery button-down top, khaki capris or coulottes with these as the cherry on top - or bottom, as the case may be. Wow!
These are just five of the seafoam green crushes I have. Believe me, there are many, many more!
