Each time a holiday rolls around we are reminded of love. A time to enjoy, savor, and relax, and be with the ones you want to spoil. Nothing is more fun than planning a party--big or small. From treating yourself to one simple mimosa, to cooking for 30, holidays are a time to be reminded of joy. Here are our favorite Spring-themed party essentials for all the upcoming holidays that live in this floral time.

Three cheers for Pantone's Color of the Year. In their own words, "Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Greenery is nature’s neutral." Here's our curated choices of furniture, wallpaper, tile, and decor, inspired by some of our favorite film moments. 

"The blue couch or the red couch?" Neither. The green couch.





Walnut Wallpaper has the widest selection of badass wallpaper.

Said Green couch. Mustard green is the perfect addition to a neutral pallet. Designed by ETC.Etera. 

Green marble countertops would be the perfect compliment to this magical eye wallpaper by Walnut Wallpaper.
The set designers of "Doubt" used a beautiful green scheme throughout the film, especially the walls of the offices. 

We have a wide selection of industrial stools, which often have the famous painted green legs, AmsterdamModern.com

ETC.Etera beautifully designed Cafe Birdie in Highland Park and you can replicate this scheme with this Walnut Wallpaper.

Because, duh.


Get your own Garden State-inspired decor, all you need is the matching shirt. Get your Dragon Wallpaper here.

This beautiful tile is available at Growhousegrow.com and makes a perfect colorful countertop. 

Be the green Keanu you want to see in the world. 

Kelly Green Streamline Sofa, available at AmsterdamModern.com and at our Warehouse location in Echo Park, Los Angeles

Never a bare wall. Tile your whole shower like you live in Morocco, or head to Walnut Wallpaper for a butterfly accent wall.

You can visit our Friso Kramer Style chairs at their new home in Hotel Covell, designed by ETC.Etera.

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
