The Green Life: Chartreuse


“I’ve read there are two types of ‘green’ people: those who prefer blue greens, and those who favor yellow greens such as chartreuse, lime, wasabi and acid green. Many children and teens love the idea of having a bright yellow-green room. Manufacturers are also using this color for products targeted toward a younger crowd. While chartreuse is definitely a youthful hue, I’m also seeing more of it in grown-up, contemporary spaces. I recently blogged about the appeal of yellow green and, while most people responded favorably, one reader described the color as ‘baby diaper green.’ That’s quite a description, and it certainly validates how personal experience factors into color preferences.”

If you know me, you know that I love green (especially Chartreuse!)
