Going Green…

To celebrate the color of prosperity, environmentally responsible design and of course, Saint Patrick, we are going green this week. Check out this collection of inspiring places and products that will leave you green with envy from J Banks Designer, Adrienne Warner.


Many of these images were taken during our time working in Italy on Hotel Castello di Casole…like this image…a rare rainbow spotted over the Italian countryside. Anyone else wondering where the pot of gold is?!
