what goes with chartreuse
) hello and happy friday! i don’t know about you but i’m not sure where the week went. it whizzed by at lightning speed. one of the good things about blogging is that it helps keep track of the days like a log. one of the bad things is that it shows what an obsessive compulsive personality looks like!
(173599760607893452) i fell into the trap again today, spending more time playing than working so far this morning. but what i’ve come to realize is that it will all get done no matter how you arrange the hours.
(23925441742692309) so my little indulgence was again a challenge for me, taking a color i normally shy away from in decor and checking out how it’s used creatively indoors and out: chartreuse
(38702878020666976) a little touch goes a long way
(38702878020666959) and if you can take it, it’s a lot of fun. but it’s a weird color to pinpoint. it straddles between green and yellow, natural and neon
(23925441743110695) below is coco chanel’s apartment where she used an apple tone on her pillows
(228205906090555498) sometimes it can lean toward garish
(38702878020666955) the vanity in this bath is what i believe is true chartreuse
(228205906089582174) or maybe it’s this ceiling trim…
(58054282666090380) but of course there’s artistic interpretation
(38702878020666910) it’s a very bold choice in decorating but for those who take the plunge the reward is great!
(228205906088210722) this little pillow is enough for some!
(58054282666087060) but i see how accents can brighten up the place
(58054282666087056) another great choice for a DIY as an entry chest color
(173599760606803219) or again, in a piece of art
(183662491025747124) maybe take it outdoors
(23925441742943529) it works with almost every color from red to turquoise
(58054282666087073) and we’re certainly not the first ones to love it!
and if there’s ever any doubt of it’s timeless chicness, we can always turn to the french who apparently have been using it for years. below at versailles. go figure!
well i hope you enjoyed today’s colorburst. now off to work for real! have a great friday!
