Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

House Beautiful put together a slideshow of green interiors to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and I was thrilled to stumble upon this kitchen designed by Gideon Mendelson. The combination of white cabinetry, dark flooring, the punchy green island, and just a hint of turquoise in the plate display is brilliant — but it’s the gingham ceiling that stole my heart. Mendelson had the design painted on the ceiling but I imagine you could achieve the same effect with wallpaper. Do you love it as much as I do? Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

P.S. Happy, happy, happy birthday to my friend and housemate Kelly, who turns 22 today!

  1. I love the green island – so gorgeous and perfect for Patty’s day!

    I’m also amazed at how great the baskets above the cabinetry look – I’ve got a few above our kitchen cabinets – not really as a design feature but more because its the only place they’ll fit – and I always look at them with dismay because they look so messy.


  2. I was so focused on the island that I didn’t even notice the great gingham ceiling. It’s just the right mix of color and white.
