B&A: Green with envy

Everyone's talking about going green. These days, going green has become synonymous with being environmentally friendly, but green means so much more than that. Just ask the Incredible Hulk. Or Kermit the Frog.

Or Tam Styles of Get It Girl Style. She took going green to a new level when she redid her home office. Her office was basically an eggshell-colored box with a few lonely pieces of furniture before she worked her magic. It looks empty, and the monotone walls, ceiling, and floor are too stark against the dark furniture.

It's hard to believe, but it really is the same room before and after. A lot of the furniture is the same, too. It's the color on the walls as well as the gallery of framed photos that have the biggest impact.

The green is a rich tone -- it borders on dark, but the light carpet, ceiling, and trim keep it balanced. The black accessories, picture frames, and chandelier add a sophisticated elegance. This room is downright sexy! Tam's definitely brought back the green-eyed monster (jealousy!) in us.
