Decorating With Lime

Lime is a very popular color in interiors right now. It can be a daunting to work with but the effect can be delightful.  If you are the bold, try anything new type, paint or paper your walls or ceilings with it, or install lime carpet. You can go over the top. If subtle describes you most, you can still enjoy this color in small doses. A throw pillow here, a lime vase there and before you know it you have a stunning room. Just come on and follow me to the Land of Oz. Your friends will be green with envy!!



A stone french house with a lime green door. What a fabulous welcome!





And the lady of the house sweeps down to say please come in for a visit. Oh well, a girl can dream can't she?






Lime can be an overwhelming color. However this white canopy and the window treatment helps to create a softer look.





The white french doors, dado molding, mantle, and mirror against this lime wall is really very pretty. Add the painted chairs and table and this vintage room is fresh and on trend.




Pink and lime has always been a popular combination and makes this eclectic living room bright and inviting.




Lime and pink are perfect for a nursery. A lovely mix of patterns, I see  polka dots and stripes.  






Stark white with lime green accessories makes this bedroom irresistible!







Black and grey rooms are stunning with lime accessories. The mirrored table is so pretty and provides a great effect.




Lovely tableware would make any party unforgettable!





 Lime, black, grey and white are great color choices for this room. The zebra rug is the perfect touch! A very unique and stunning bathroom painted a strong shade of lime and accessorized with a fabulous black lacquer mirror. Tres chic! 




And yes, even though it is trendy, soft lime can be used with shabby chic! Looks fabulous with this vintage  distressed blue armoire.




This chair painted lime is such a compliment to this room.  Layered patterns in blue and lime give a beautiful effect.




Lime and aqua is a favorite of mine. It is a tranquil color combination, like the sea.



 I love the checkered  french chair in this lime and aqua sitting room.This bedroom is beautiful with lime that is soft and feminine. Be sure to play with patterns. It makes for an interesting room.



A period room with a definite fresh look. The dark wood looks great against the lime painted walls.








Purple and lime is a very popular color combination at present. It is so vibrant and give a boho gypsy look with out going all the way in that direction. It is used much of the time against grey walls.




The lime and the coconut. Brown and lime green are so fresh against white walls. Think tropical!
