Thinking green today. Wonder why? Happy St. Patty’s Day! So you should be wearing green or else you might get pinched! Did you know that St. Patrick was originally associated with the color blue? But then he started using the three-leaf shamrock as a way to teach to the Holy Trinity (i.e., Father, Son, Holy Spirit) to the pre-Catholic Irish. After that, it was spring green for St. Pat. So today at Design Palate, we are celebrating green. Religious or not, for those with a passion for design and St. Patrick’s Day — these green decor inspirations are for you!
