Doesn’t it just sound great and unusual? A shade halfway between yellow and green, chartreuse was appropriately named after a French liqueur of the same hue; a saucy name for a saucy bright. Making its way through the hot trending colors periodically, chartreuse has had a recent resurgence. While it might not be the easiest color to work into your décor, it can be a great complement to a neutral (I especially love it with a grey or greige) and really spice up the joint.
Here are a few fabulous examples.
This photo I took so does not do it justice. The wall was the perfect chartreuse and everything about the display from the frames on the wall, to the buffet, to the incredible bull statue, captured exactly what I think the color does–sophistication with fun and a bit of the unexpected. I want to transport this scene exactly into my home.
