Cool non-traditional choices for a front door are lime and turquoise, says garden designer Carmen Johnston of Nectar & Co. This contemporary home was designed by Koch Architects, based in Berkeley, Calif.
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 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.
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.
Bright green doors with floral inlay are a bold entrance into this contemporary southwestern home. Through the open door, guests get a glimpse of the chic living room with gray stone fireplace and eclectic mix of furnishings.
A bold red door is given a touch of holiday flair with framing garland and a matching wreath. Green and red ornament balls, clear lights and red berries were added to create a lively and colorful display.
The cozy front porch has a built-in ceiling heater for comfortable socializing on cool evenings. Lime-green walls create a fun vibe in the small space. Kelly green and hot-pink caps on the white columns add an extra touch of color. A white-cushioned loveseat fits snugly on the far end of the porch.
