A little history:
First popularized in 1764, chartreuse gets its name from French liqueur.
How does it make us feel?
Chartreuse symbolizes cheerfulness, imagination, distinction, and acceptance. The effects can be it energizes, elevates, inspires, and encourages. Chartreuse is a strong yet versatile color that can comfortably shift between ultra-modern and historical and is found in nature.

- All shades of purple
- Hot Pink
Chartreuse goes from earthy to electric, so it pairs well with other colors! Chartreuse is one of those colors that makes a statement. You can paint a whole room or do accent pieces- it’s never too much, always enough!
