Color of the Month: Chartreuse

by Erika Woelfel

Chartreuse, a vivid fusion of green and yellow, is a versatile shade that can fluctuate between lively and electric to earthy and muted. No matter where it falls on the spectrum, this hue makes a strong visual impact and adds a fresh touch to any space.


Chartreuse plays well with fiery reds and oranges, deep, oceanic, blues, turquoises, as well as shades of charcoal gray.


In a modern home, this acidic shade is the perfect pop of culture amongst neutral tones and looks extra sharp against bright white.


In a more traditional space, a punch of citrus can lend a refreshing, whimsical touch and prevent a room from appearing too stuffy.


Whether it leans toward neon or mossy, chartreuse is an eye-catching color choice for any style of home. For a bold touch, paint an entire accent wall. To test the waters, try it on a throw pillow. With this lovely lime hue, you can’t go wrong.


Colorfully Yours,
