Color of the Moment: Chartreuse

Chartreuse is bold yet traditional. Not quite quite green, not quite yellow. Chartreuse has the kind of depth and hue that gets it noticed every time, in any space. And you have to love that it’s named for a French liqueur made by Carthusian monks since the 1700s.

Chartreuse furniture makes a spectacular accent. Find a favorite piece and paint it just the right shade. Distress the surface for a great blend of color and texture.

Chartreuse cabinetry livens up a kitchen for a forever fresh looking space.

Take a chance and brighten up your front door with a beautiful shade of green/yellow. You won’t regret it!

Chartreuse accents make fantastic pops of color, particularly against a grey or black backdrop.

What’s not to love about this chartreuse tub? If you have a clawfoot design, consider finding your favorite shade and painting your tub like the one below.
