A while back I read an article in the September issue of House Beautiful about color. There was a map of the US showing favorite colors in different parts of the country. 

I was surprised that orange was the favorite color of the Southeast. I would have thought orange would be the favorite color of the Southwest. I know orange is a hot color right now but I've never been an orange girl. 

Green won as the hot color of Louisiana. Anyone who lives in New Orleans and is old enough to remember the wood benches in City Park knows City Park Green. In the past 10 years or so the green that you see in the French Quarter has gotten lighter. 

Green is one of my favorite colors. To me the right shade of green is a neutral color. Think about Mother Nature...Green is all around us. There's so many shades to choose from. Green can either soothe or energize you.

Here are a few green combos. All photos are from 

Pink and Green...think flowers, green leaves.
Perfect for a little girls room. 

Blue and Green...can be very clean and contemporary.

White and Green...this isn't your Grandma's kitchen but white and green is always in style.

How about Yellow and Green...

And yes...even Orange and Green...
