Decorating With Lime Green
ComplementarySplit ComplementaryAnalogous


This sophisticated and soothing scheme lends itself well to modern spaces. It uses tints and shades of one color, staying within the same column on the color wheel. A monochromatic scheme for lime green might feature a range of tones from light mint to olive.

Making a monochromatic room work, especially with a vibrant color like lime green, begins with finding a good balance between your base color's varying tints and shades. An electric chartreuse hue was chosen for the wall color in this crisp bedroom. This beautiful yellow-green blend is in the middle of the color spectrum, so both darker shades and lighter tints will complement it.

Because lime green can't help but command attention, consider furniture that doesn't compete with your color scheme. A clean-lined, dark brown bed and matching chest and nightstand will work perfectly. And for added depth and dimension, choose bedding and decorative accents, like throw pillows and potted plants, in variations of traditional lime green.

To finish your monochromatic space, add some neutral touches or even pops of white. You can see how the white shag area rug and ottoman soften the more prominent lime green while preserving that fresh look and feel in this bedroom.
