Colors and effects can be chained, and added in any order. You can specify one foreground color and one background color (setting a new value will overwrite the previous one). Effects like bold and underline, on the other hand, combine together.
Colors: [:black, :red, :green, :yellow, :blue, :magenta, :cyan, :white]
Effects: [:bold, :underline, :blink, :reverse, :concealed]
