No, not the candy and the fruit! Ok, well those too!
I love the combination of bright, fresh lime green paired with a masculine, warm chocolate brown! You can probably tell from the blog theme I chose! So right now our living room is having an identify crisis. Our birch veneer “Poang” chair sits next to a large paper lamp in one corner directly across from our glossy white “Besta Burs” TV stand.
So far so good…
Unfortunately we spent all our decorating money on a 42″ flat screen plasma TV, a Wii with lots of fun games including GUITAR HERO and an XBox 360 because we just couldn’t wait for the Wii to come out! (Then 2 weeks later we got a Wii because OMG we had the opportunity so who doesn’t buy a Wii if they have the chance right?)
So sitting across from our TV stand that holds pretty much everything we own that is worth anything (heehee) is a loveseat that I swear I have pictures of my husband sitting in when he was like 10 years old. It is cream (darker and darker every year) and dark green plaid with some burgundy running through it as well. It’s very Northern Virginia to say the least! Definitely has that “Country Clutter” vibe to it! Of course we were lucky enough to have this loveseat given to us because it was either this or milk crates 😉 But I think we’re about ready for an upgrade.
Besides the fact that it is horribly uncomfortable, its stained on BOTH sides of the cushions and totally doesn’t suite our taste! Right now we’re saving money for EVERYTHING (including a belated honeymoon!) but we’re hoping to get a new couch/loveseat when we move to Winchester. The move will hopefully happen early in the summer but more on that some other time!
So I’m digging around for inspiration and here are some things I love in the lime/chocolate combo…
Here is a fabulous photo from lindsayplan’s flickr… It’s not exactly the kind of thing I’ll have sitting around in my living room but don’t these colors just make you feel energized and cozy at the same time?!
Here is one more from Decor Amor:
Well that’s all for now! But there is so much great stuff out there in this color scheme…. I see an inspiration board in my future! 😉
