Reader Design: Kathleen's Impeccable Emerald Accents

I have a question for you.  What's better than a Friday?  How about a fall Friday?  Nay - how about a...

As Chelsea posted about here and here, we are keen on green this season. Well not only do we have a stunning home tour courtesy of Kathleen from Lindsay Hill Interiors for you today, we have more of our favorite trending fall color: emerald.

From Kathleen:

I would describe my style as crisp, clean, and cozy. I love in a small and cozy much more than big and ornate! I love using white backgrounds and adding interest with pops of color and with wood and texture. I always add something vintage, or antique, or a family heirloom to every room. I think old things have such charm and character, and they help keep us connected to our past and to those we love.
[This is my] dining area with plate wall and old buffet that I painted. I don't love my table, but I'm making it work for now! Also, I removed the inner drum shade lining from the chandelier so the crystals could sparkle.
The Kitchen is my favorite room in the house! I have a thing for white kitchens, and I love adding pops of color to them.

Would you look at those excellent green accents people!?

I snagged this vintage tin canister set at a local antique shop. It's become my favorite kitchen accessory!
My kitchen, living room, and dining area are all open to each other. This sofa, though a nice quality, was a boring brown tweed. I decided to sew slipcovers for my living room furniture (crazy idea, since I had never sewn a slipcover in my life!), but I love how they turned out and how they tie all those open areas together now.
My husband thought I was crazy when I dragged this old door into the house (he still thinks I'm crazy!), but I love using it for seasonal decorating.

I have one of those myself Kathleen [both the decorative door and the less-than-thrilled husband].  Decorative doors unite!

This slate topped entry table is perfect for little vignettes, and to hold my white-headed lady.
This little settee [in the entry] also got covered in a white slipcover. In fact, I started my slipcovering experience with this settee, which was probably a mistake since it was the curviest of the pieces I covered!

Ok well you can't tell this was your inaugural slipcover Kathleen.  And how chic and fun is that typographic wall art and those touches of brass?!

I love the built-ins [in the mudroom] for hiding all those not-so-pretty necessities.
I originally wanted wallpaper [in the hall bath], but when I priced out the one I wanted, I just couldn't bring myself to spend the money. So I went to my local dollar store, bought a cheap stencil, and this is the end result. I love how it perks up this space.
My office is my happy room where I do my creating.
This [master bedroom sitting area] is where I retire to before bed to read, browse IG, and relax.
I love the feature wall behind the bed [in the master bedroom] - it adds a lovely tailored touch.

Thank you so much Kathleen for this incredible gem of a home tour!  And if you are not in on this already, be sure to follow Kathleen @lindsay_hill_interiors for more STUNNING home decor and design.
