New Week, New Color, BIG Statement!

Chartreuse is a 50:50 mixture of bright green and yellow and the French liquor made by Cathusian monks give its name to the color.

Not many are daring enough to use chartreuse in a room.  It's BIG color so you don't need much to make a BIG statement.

I think it's a great color when balanced with the right color combination.  It can be combined with turquoise, pink and other vibrant colors to create a bright, cheerful ambiance.   If you want to make a trend-setting statement, my recommendation is pairing it with grey, the biggest color forecasted for 2011.

Stay tuned for great ways to use chartreuse this week.  It's going to be exciting!
