Chartreuse: Color Scheming on Etsy
Handpicked on Etsy
Chartreuse has come to mean a color about halfway between yellow and green, while traditionally it meant 'yellow with a green cast' after the French liquer of the same name. As a fashion color, designers bestow it with trendy color names including pear, pistacio, apple, and camouflage. In my design career, I've found chartreuse can offend the eye of some people, while others appreciate as I do how a touch of chartreuse can enliven a color scheme. How does chartreuse affect you? It typically makes me smile, and I hope that is your reaction to this showcase of handmade and vintage creations found on Etsy. Click on the pictures to go directly to these listings. Prices range from $5.00 to $110.00.
