color crush {lemon + lime}

I have found myself using citrus more than ever these days in my cooking. Lemon and lime are the perfect seasonal flavor. Their color adds the same fresh touch to a home or ensemble as the flavor does a dish.

I am suspicious to leave a message about this post... because i LOVE yellow! The color yellow here produced "water in my mouth"!

This gave me an idea: I would like to eat lemon-tart now... :-) hum...

Love this combination and these images display it beautifully. I have been noticing that great citron green with gray and it looks amazing together. kathysue

Hard to be sour and cranky in these rooms!

I just noticed the yellow (seagrass?) wall covering to the left in the first image. Beautiful.

LOVE that bedroom! So bright and cheery. Even just a bowl fun of lemons and/or limes in the kitchen, brightens the room up so much. They're actually on my tablecloth fabric right now! :)
