It is no secret I am a lover of green, as you can see from my kitchen.

Greens come in so many varieties, however, since I am talking about Fall and ideas for Fall decor I thought I would talk about Artichoke Green.
Artichokes can be used in so many different ways in your Fall decor. I have collected some images that I hope will inspire you to add this wonderful color to your Fall palette.
CLEAR (227x253)
Simple? Yes, but this could be very striking in your kitchen or on your dining room table with candle light.
NO BOW (300x400) 
Speaking of candlelight. We not only have artichokes, but we have green beans and asparagus all in great shades of green I also like that they did not tie a bow to hold them, just a simple knot with ribbon.( I am not big on bows and I prefer something a little more simple)
ASPARAGUS (650x433)
Speaking of bows, I do love the purple with the artichoke and asparagus green, but, and I do mean but, think how much more sophisticated it would have looked without the bow, just a simple knot would look so much better, IMHO. This is really a simple, but fun idea.
CANDLE (338x450)
I love the dark brown of the pinecone with the green of the artichoke. That is really a great fall color combination.
Oh! Why Not?!!

PITCHER (800x800)
This is perfection to me. A simple white pitcher filled to over flowing with artichokes and surrounded by herbs and wood. Love this!!

PURPLE (250x368)
Purple really looks pretty with artichoke green.
WHEAT (275x360)
How about a wreath of wheat and artichokes?!
VASE (137x206)
Artichoke used as a vase for mums and lavender. A very pretty color combination.

More lavender and artichokes pretty with white.
Simple yet very pretty!!

ROSES (400x300) 
These last two pictures are my favorites!! 

This is what I learned about myself while doing this post. I love artichoke green when it is mixed with simple white and dark brown/black. I told you, I am always on a learning curve.

Did you discover anything about your like or dis-like for the color of artichoke green? Which color combination did you like the best?

Before I let you go I have to share a few rooms that are decorated with the color artichoke green, Enjoy!!
