Neon shades are all the rage, and right now, we’re
puckering up to lime green! This electrifying hue
draws the eye into a room and adds major definition.
The key to decorating with lime green is to also invite
its softer sides to the party. So for some mega-watt
inspiration, this month’s color story puts four unique
spaces in the limelight.
Opposites attract as proven by this scheme, which pairs two colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. These colors complement each other, adding interest and energy to a room. Looking at the color wheel, you can see that the complement of lime green is fuchsia or purple-red.
What little girl wouldn't love this pink and lime green bedroom? Sticking with the middle tiers of the color wheel, this complementary room looks like a watermelon come to life! To recreate this look, start with a refreshing sorbet shade on your walls. Since you're dealing with a little girl's room, now's the perfect time to embrace these non-conservative colors!
For your furniture, white could certainly work, but it's a bit predictable. We chose this set for its warm wood finish, which doesn't compete with the vibrant lime green and watermelon shades elsewhere in the room. This set will also grow with your little girl as she becomes a young lady.
Go all out with this color scheme by choosing bedding and desk accessories in pretty pinks and electric lime green, as we've done here. And because this complementary scheme is saturated with color, working in accents, like a shapely, white bedside lamp and cotton-candy pink area rug, bring balance–and a bit of playfulness–to the space.
