A comment on a recent posts was that there are now so many names for colours that we can scarcely keep up. This reminded me of my friend Chaz, whose favourite colour is Chartreuse. It is nothing short of spectacular.
It is one of those colours that is hard to categorise — not quite yellow and not quite green. Less saturated than lime, but not quite as dark as olive, Chartreuse takes its name from the liqueur, a herbal concoction with a distinctive taste to match its unusual color. Vibrant and fresh, it fits with all design styles and combines beautifully with a range of colours. Much like pink, it is one of those colours you’ll either love or hate!
