Halfway between green and yellow — this fun hue can bring just the right zing as an accent wall or can be paired with neutrals to bring a modern flair. According to Wikipedia, this color got its name because it resembled the green color of one of the French liqueurs called green chartreuse, introduced in 1764. Who knew? :)
Check out the home I have for sale at 825 Willoway in East Alton. I totally LOVE the fresh chartreuse color they picked for their living room. It works beautifully with their wood floors and curtains.
Can you believe the difference that paint made in this kitchen!!?? The owners of this home are gearing up to sell and painting the cabinets is one of the suggestions I made. I think the white cabinets (actually, they are a very light grey) make the stainless appliances and cool light fixtures stand out even more. As a seller, you want buyers to notice all the nice improvements you have made, and in this case the color really helps draw your eye to the appliances. The owner commented that she also thinks it shows off the number of cabinets she has more than the original brown. I am super impressed with this mini face lift and I know it will translate into a higher offer!!
If you are thinking about selling your home and you think your kitchen might need some love, shoot me a message. I would be happy to help you decide if the project you have in mind will pay off.
I can also help you select a color and find a painter...my favorite part!
