Fabric difficulties

I am, as i have mentioned earlyer, sick and tired of those silk taffeta collours, i cant get inspired to do anything with them, simple as that, and in stead of keeping on to loose time and inspiration, i have chosen some other collours. I have never made a dress with 2 different collours, well i have made jacket and skirt, but i want to see if i can manage to get inspired to make something of these 2 collours:

Either i want to make a francaise with an underskirt in the Water Lily collour and overdress of the Tint Green, or an early anglaise with lots of trim on it.
Could be interresting to make the trim of the overdress with the opposite collour, and vise versa with the skirt.
I never understand why i ordered home those stupid tan and brown-green colloured taffetas, perhaps i can use them in the future for some redingotes, most suited for that.
I will sertanly pack the ugly collours away, to the bottom of my stash.
Well i have 7 meters of the Tint Green, but only 1,5 meter of the Water Lily colloured, but its James Hare silk taffetas, and its their range of collours, so i think i am going to get them a call and ask them to send me some more Water Lily.
This photo of the collours, the Water Lily and the Tint Green is much brighter, in reality its a little darker...............
