Today is Chartreuse


Chartreuse is more of a spectrum than an actual color, but if you get the right combination of yellow to green, it is fantastic.  The sunlight creates so much depth and variations in tone in this hallway, it manages to bring warmth to a cool color. chartreuse hallway

I live nowhere near the tropics, but this bedroom contrasts the color with neutrals. It’s such a bright, happy color, combined with the sunny weather I can’t imagine how anyone wouldn’t wake up smiling.

This is one of the most unique tables I’ve seen, and I like how it stands out even more so in the middle of a more modern room. If I were looking for subtle ways to use this color in a dining room, seat cushions are a good idea.

With bathrooms, less is more. For some reason, this color only seems to work in small doses in this room of the house.  This one in particular reminds me a little of the Flintsones, but the chartreuse splashes and fuzziness tone down the rustic to a dull roar. (If only the walls were less institutional.) rustic bathroom
