Against a wall painted lime green, this alabaster white bookshelf provides a sharp contrast. Items displayed on the shelf include white books and white ceramic pieces, including a topiary plant and coral.
The decking on this small front porch is ipe wood and the ceiling is clear cedar. The vibrant lime green shines next to the wood. A built-in heater in the ceiling warms the gray wicker loveseat, which is adorned with white cushions.
The dressing area, within close proximity to the kid’s bedroom at HGTV Green Home 2010, includes a mobile storage shelf and a vanity mirror. The window, flanked by two bulkhead lights, provides a picturesque view of the east lawn.
The screen in this midcentury modern living room rests at the bottom of the stairs and was used in place of a railing. It mimics a piece of furniture and the square design adds an interesting textural element to the area. Design by Guy and Karen Vidal, owners Design Vidal, Silver Lake, California.
Designer Meg Caswell wasn't afraid of using color or pattern in this dining room, where coral, chartreuse and chevron give the room a big personality. Tabletop topiaries and a gold chandelier are more formal counterpoints to the eclectic dining chairs.
Wood boards add pizzazz to this navy bedroom wall and blend with the simple yet beautiful bedside table. A funky, contemporary lamp brings a pop of bright color and an interesting shape contrast. A yellow clock and stack of colorful luggage contribute to the colorful design.
When used together, blue and lime green create a look that is fresh and inspiring. Because the blue-green tone is less intense than the electrifying citrus color of lime green, it's best to use blue as the dominant tone and lime as an accent.
