Appropriately named for its resemblance to the French liqueur, chartreuse is a yellow green color that sits between yellow and green in the color wheel.
Chartreuse is a vivid color that combines the vitality of green with the energy and optimism of yellow. It is thus associated with healing, good health, and a healthy lifestyle.
Chartreuse can be used in combination with nearby colors such as green as well as blues, grays, and neutrals. Due to its brightness and saturation, chartreuse is best used as an accent or highlight.
