I have been on a trip to get myself to infuse more colors into my life, since I have a tendency to sway the more monochromatic way. But there is one color I do not know if I can do, and that is Chartreuse . . . yes – half way yellow half way green.
Why spend any time contemplating the question of “to Chartreuse or not to Chartreuse”? Well I seem to stumble upon this range of color quite often, and it is never a maybe moment, it is always a big yes or a big no moment. So I feel like there has to be a decision at the end of it. I have therefore decided to make one yes list and one no list.
Let’s start with the good – the yes pile:
Yes to the gown.
Yes to this combination – a tiny bit sceptical about the fabric on the chairs – but the rest makes up for it.
Yes to the cushions in the chairs – no fault here.
Yes to the pop of color.
Yes to the couch.
Yes to the maxi skirt.
Yes to the shoes. . . I want these!
Yes to the necklace!
A big yes to the bikini
…and an even bigger yes to this dining room!
Yes to the &
I say yes to the maxi skirt once more. . .
Yes to the additions of color to such an otherwise muted pallet
and finally – I say yes to the chairs!
Then we have the not so good – the no go pile:
No to the kitchen – this is just too much.
No to the skirt – same reason as the kitchen above.
No to the jumpsuit – I know she looks good in it – but I also know I wouldn’t!
No – no – no. This is the reason zebras don’t wear Chartreuse!
I am tilting a bit to yes on this – since it would be soft to sleep on – but need to stick to my guns – no to the boa.
Again – no I can’t do the kitchen.
No to the mess!
No to the shoes
No to the mess!
…and a no to this dress…
No to the bedroom
No to this dining room
No to the nursery
I say no to the hair – she might make it work – I know I wouldn’t!
one word – no
I just have to say no to the ceiling
I think it is time to stop. . . Let’s add it all up:
Yes – 14
No – 17
So I am more sceptical than loving it – but what I love I really do love.
So my conclusion is – I am not to Chartreuse in big percentages. I should have it in with a teaspoon.
