Going Green

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we highlight how K.C. homes used green to add interest to their spaces

From rugs to wallpaper and paint, green hues can be used in a variety of ways to add a touch of interest to a home. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we highlighted how K.C. homeowners used the happy color in their households.

The entry way of homeowner Patty Zender’s Prairie Village townhouse makes a bold statement with eye-catching Chinois Palais by Schumacher, inspired by L.A. designer Mary McDonald’s love of chinoiserie.

Designer Mindy Day papered the hallway with it, then picked up the theme with linen draperies in the living room.


Crisp green, the color of young lettuce, covers the walls of the garden room in this Tudor home, owned by attorney Maurice Watson.


Lively garden-inspired wallpaper was added to the walls of the dining room, used as a library, in this Fairway home:


The pale green tile in the bathroom of this Leawood ranch was inspired by the homeowners’ love of nature:


The homeowners of this Independence renovation used a bright green rug “that looks like grass” to add a playful touch to their entry way.


Talk about a statement. For this home, Katillac teamed up with designer and public health advisor Sherry Mirador to give lime-green life to the rooms of a Raytown family’s two boys.
