Eye-catching colour combinations.
Chartreuse is best used as a highlight or accent colour. Since many shades are quite bright and attention grabbing, they can overwhelm the viewer when used as the primary colour. “Instead, pair chartreuse with a warm dark grey or something,” says Ackerman. When you add more neutral or calm hues to your colour system, like cream, black, grey or blue, you can either tone down the bright shades or highlight the contrast. Just experiment with different shades and tones and see what works best for your design.

Aside from web design and illustrations, chartreuse also makes a great choice for interior design colour schemes. The Pantone colour Bright Chartreuse is a popular favourite of late. “But keep in mind, chartreuse shows up very differently in different mediums, whether digitally, in fashion or paint,” explains McGoldrick. So before you choose a darker green chartreuse for your dining room or a bright chartreuse yellow for the sitting room, get samples and see what works best for the space, especially if you plan to take real estate photographs.
The colour chartreuse is bright and cheerful and with such a wide range of shades and hues, it’s a versatile colour for your design needs.
