This week we are crushing on one of my favorite colors: Chartreuse.
It’s an alluring shade that is not quite yellow, not quite green…it hovers ever so elegantly right in between! So versatile and elegant. This unique color got its name originally due of its resemblance to the green color of one of a French liqueur called “Green Chartreuse” which was introduced in 1764.
This classic color can be used in so many ways, drench your space in it’s vibrant shade, or use as an accent to pop when preparing a more neutral background.
Here are some inspiring ways to incorporate chartreuse into your life, be it workspace, home decor, wardrobe or colorful accessories…I say “drink it up” and let’s get tipsy on Chartreuse!
Chocolate, Espresso, Bittersweet, Mocha…Sunshine, Buttercup, Lemon or Citrine, whatever the shade, these two colors work so well it’s as if they were made for each other. They also make delicious gelato flavors!! What fun it must be to have the job of naming paint colors like these…
Warm, cozy brown tones are given a fresh burst of sunny color when used along side any shade of yellow… Accent with brass and gold and you’ve got a winning combination for any space with a decidedly retro chic feel.
Perfect for Fall………here are some fabulous inspiration pics we found showing this versatile color palette, from eclectic decor to funky fashion and accessories and how you could incorporate ModShop by RoomService pieces in your space to re-create this look.
Halloween is just around the corner and we can’t help but get excited. It’s that one time of year we get to fill our houses with eerie décor and play pretend for a whole evening. But as fun as this holiday may be, it has developed quite the reputation for its dark and moody home décor – not to mention all the realistically terrifying costumes.
Halloween can still be just as playful as any holiday…all it needs is a modern spin. Add a pop of white to your typical Halloween color combination of black and orange. Instead of carving a pumpkin, try painting a cool chevron design on it. Give your costume a sleek update by adding a classy, fashionable spin. After all, there’s no rule saying Halloween can’t be hauntingly chic. You don’t have to sacrifice your modern style to get into the Halloween Spirit.
Here are some spooky, but bright inspirations, as well as some pieces from ModShop you can use to embrace the ghostly festivities.
