This week we are crushing on one of my favorite colors: Chartreuse.
It’s an alluring shade that is not quite yellow, not quite green…it hovers ever so elegantly right in between! So versatile and elegant. This unique color got its name originally due of its resemblance to the green color of one of a French liqueur called “Green Chartreuse” which was introduced in 1764.
This classic color can be used in so many ways, drench your space in it’s vibrant shade, or use as an accent to pop when preparing a more neutral background.
Here are some inspiring ways to incorporate chartreuse into your life, be it workspace, home decor, wardrobe or colorful accessories…I say “drink it up” and let’s get tipsy on Chartreuse!
Chocolate, Espresso, Bittersweet, Mocha…Sunshine, Buttercup, Lemon or Citrine, whatever the shade, these two colors work so well it’s as if they were made for each other. They also make delicious gelato flavors!! What fun it must be to have the job of naming paint colors like these…
Warm, cozy brown tones are given a fresh burst of sunny color when used along side any shade of yellow… Accent with brass and gold and you’ve got a winning combination for any space with a decidedly retro chic feel.
Perfect for Fall………here are some fabulous inspiration pics we found showing this versatile color palette, from eclectic decor to funky fashion and accessories and how you could incorporate ModShop by RoomService pieces in your space to re-create this look.
