My Current Color Crush

Have you ever gotten a color stuck in your head? I know if I have a T. Swift song in my head for days, the best way to shake it off is to just listen to it. Somehow listening to the song that's stuck in your head makes it un-stuck. It seems counter-intuitive, but it always works for me! With that logic, I figured the best way to get a color un-stuck from my head is making a blog post about it. I'll let you know if it works.

Anyway, for some reason I can't get this chartreuse shade outta my brain! I've been planning for a while to use different neutrals, blues and blush in the living room of my new loft, and in the back of my head, I keep thinking I'll add in a little chartreuse. Merry and I toured the loft a couple months before our lease began, and when we got to move-in day, I was pleasantly surprised our hanging kitchen lights are this exact color. (Which is probably why I've been thinking about it... because it was Inception'd into my brain.)

So, here's a little mood board inspired by Mrs. Meyer's and my current favorite summery shade:

I love how this color can feel young and vibrant, but in small doses, it can also feel sophisticated and modern (lookin' at you, West Elm rug!) I've also had to talk myself out of buying that Target candle (number two) about four times by now. P.S. If you're local to Springfield, MO, you can get the Capri Blue candle (number three) at The Market — it's one of the pretty things pictured in "The Dos and Don'ts of Burning Candles."

Leaving you with this lamp (also from West Elm) because, well, just look at it!

Heart-eyes emoji for days! Any colors you've been loving lately?
