Chartreuse color crave ...

This spring, I'm ready to color everything in chartreuse! What started so innocently with the purchase of a lovely scarf for my spring wardrobe, has become a full OMG-level desire for everything chartreuse.

My spring scarf purchased at Kathleen Sommers boutique.

It is so easy to fall in love with this vivid color in fashion. So, I put together a chartreuse pin board of my current favorites from the catwalk to store shelves.

But, I had to see how my chartreuse obsession would translate outside, too.

What better color for garden gates or gorgeous clay pots? I absolutely adore the front door painted in this dynamic shade. And, the French fauteil patent leather chair is as glam as glam can get!

Now, I can't seem to get enough of this color in fabulous interiors. As an accent color, it is the center of attention, and chartreuse in a luxurious fabric like velvet - well, that's truly a show-stopper!

Chartreuse window treatments look stunning in transitional spaces. Floor to ceiling draperies in a daring citrus hue will definitely earn praise.

Chartreuse is effectively paired with a kaleidoscope of bright colors, but I'm personally fond of a neutral background where this green can grab the spotlight.

I've been having a gray love affair for the last couple of years, so the color scheme above tics all the boxes for me. The chartreuse accent and subdued background are my kind of yummy.

Ah, to boldly go wherever this color may lead ...
