Here is another fun color to think about incorporating into your home – Chartreuse green! When you think about this color I’m sure your mind goes to movies like Shrek or The Muppet Movie. This interesting color is half green, half yellow and has become really hot in 2012 for interior design and fashion.

Here are a few interiors that have used this hot new color well.

I might actually consider using this color in my home, maybe not for my whole kitchen or hardwood floors though. Using it for an accent wall or to paint an old piece of furniture is more along the lines of what I was thinking.
So, what are your thoughts? Would you use Chartreuse green in your home or office?

Happy Wednesday!
