Currently Coveting: Chartreuse

Spring has me feelin' some type of way, and I'm literally counting down the days to Hamptons beach weather here in New York.   I've been on a bright, poppy color kick and a few designer windows from this year's LCDQ Legends event have me feeling inspired by chartreuse.  One of the big events in the US design community, La Cienega Design Quarter's ("LCDQ") Legends event each spring is a 3-day celebration that brings together some of the country's most sought-after designers, bloggers, and tastemakers to discuss and celebrate the state of the industry and where design is headed.   One key component of the event is the LCDQ windows.  Galleries, showrooms, and decor shops that are part of the LCDQ community partner with a designer who transforms their store window for the event.  This year, my favorites were Betsy Burnham's window at Serena & Lily (you can see it below in my moodboard) and Nick Olsen's window at Harbinger:

Chartreuse got it's name after a French liquor called "green chartreuse" was introduced in 1764.  The liqueur resembles a mix of yellow and green:

It's such a mood-brightening color, and I love seeing it in interiors:

The headboard of Lindsay Coral Harper's Upper East Side bedroom is a lovely silk chartreuse:

Kelly Wearstler designed Bergdorf Goodman's restaurant with lush lime-y chartreuse leather chairs.  This spot is one of my favorites (I celebrated my big 2-8 here the year before last!)

These chartreuse lamps in Amanda Nisbet's living room were a family heirloom passed down from her parents- and their divine:

Here's my mood board of all my favorite fabulous chartreuse things- including a photo of the Betsy Burnham LCDQ window that I love so much:
