Chartreuse with a splash of red, just for fun

I’m up to my neck in catalogs and ripped out pages from home and garden magazines.  We have the dimensions of each room in our new home, and I have been given the task of planning the furnishings for each of them.  For those of you who don’t know me, this is literally like setting a kid loose in a candy store.  I am loving every minute of it.

My husband thought it was great too, until he saw the Amex bill.  Ooops.  After the third new rug arrived, my excuse of “But, honey, we NEED it” begins to ring a bit hollow.  However, I remain undeterred, I must decorate.  The Swiss have an interesting take on the use of color and form.  Seriously, this is the kind of design aesthetic I’m working with…
