It began with this photo. I saved the image to my desktop and now I don't remember where I first saw it but it totally pulls me in.
The white sofas on that black rug are truly stunning and I am crazy for the explosions of raspberry pink and yellow. The white floors and walls, though are what I think make it work. They lend a calming element and allow the more shocking snaps of color to pull together and balance out one another so beautifully.
The drama of this look, I am obsessed.
Two years ago if you had told me that I would be such a fan of chartreuse I never would have believed you. I didn't even know what to call it. Is is yellow? Is it green. To explain myself I usually referred to it as tennis ball yellow.
Then I started seeing it in more places. It has even filtered down to Target. Eventually I found it the sight of it was no longer so jarring to me. In fact, I started to find myself drawn to it and now I embrace it. Remember these shoes I bought back in May to speed shop in Vegas?
I like to think the US Olympic team copied me.
This color teams up beautifully with browns, navy, orange, turquoise, and even greens, and hot pink.
