Before writing this I wasn’t sure that I was much a fan of lime green; since it seemed too much for my unknowing eyes but then I changed my mind and so will you.
Lime green is a mixture of yellow and green, though it harbors more yellow in it than green. It can come in more electric shades or more earthy shades but how to use it is your own choice.
The use of lime green on the exterior of your house can create a very summery look. For instance, you can opt to have the house painted in a sandy beige color and then add the lime green to make for a summer beach house; the lime green can be the flaps; the doors or the rooftop. If not beige, you can really try to go for an all-white exterior and opt for a lime green roof to break the uniformity of the house. Now, if you are bold you can try for an all-lime green home which will make your home strike out from the other houses.
Interior walls of the house
If you are not ready for lime green on the outside of the house, you can try to bring it in the house by painting it in a room. Just so you know lime green goes well with white; it, in fact, goes very well with white because it makes you think of all things summery. You can therefore, opt for a striped lime green and white room or you can choose to have a lime green room with a white lining at the top and the bottom so that it breaks the homogeneity of the room.
However, if you want to be striking go for lime green against black; it certainly does the trick for me; because I really love how if you choose black furniture it is striking how it pops to the view in a lime green room; for example a bedroom which would be lime green could be enhanced with an dark ebony bed and a black commode and you can even choose to have bedcover that is lime green to create a more general effect.
Furniture and Decorations
If you are not ready for painting the walls lime green then you can choose within a large variety of furniture and decorations. For instance you can add lime green cushions to your white or black set of sofas or you can buy a lime green couch to put in the living room but also on your outdoor patio.
You can also try to find mug sets that are porcelain black with lime green in the inside to do a striking set for your breakfast or you can eventually find that you can find lime green dishware that can be used for the home. For the bold hearted you can even try to find island counters that are lime green but then go for a pale color or a darker color so that the island counters can strike your guests.
You can also try color blocking the colors; if you are ready for it; try lime green against purple or fuchsia for a more color blocking effect.
