My SIL and I are getting one for MIL for Christmas. I'm the local so am charged with selecting the monogram colors and I'm stumped. The Barney's SA was pushing dark green over white or yellow and I thought it was too garish. I was thinking gray/white, but my SIL thinks it may be too understated. I just don't know. I really appreciated your suggestions for my bordeaux so I figured, I'd ask here again. Many thanks!
