It's not so drab ...

Olive green is one of those colors that I'm generally ambivalent about. For the most part, I have spent my life neither loving it or hating it. That lack of emotion is changing, however. Designers are finally creating appealing looks that rev up this humble shade.

Olive is the star in the dining rooms above and below. The green hue adds just the right amount of warmth and vibrancy to both transitional and traditional spaces.

Because olive is so closely related to avocado green, mid-century modern enthusiasts have a renewed appreciation for the color in today's decor.

Seating in olive could not be any more luxurious. I find this green velvet to be truly swoon worthy!

Olive surely belongs at the table, and it is presented here in a deliciously casual setting with loads of rustic charm.

Thinking ahead to Spring 2013, Dolce & Gabbana has made olive green one of the 'it' colors for the season. Viola! That proves there's nothing drab about the new looks in this shade.
