This Spring green was inspired by the color of the cedar shake siding on the Old Lucketts Store. This charming gem of an antique shop can be found in the hamlet of Lucketts, west of the Potomac River in Virginia. This vintage green was a popular furniture color in the 1930's and 1940's.
Lucketts Green is part of the Farmhouse Collection.
