How to Decorate With Lime Green

Updated February 21, 2017

Decorate with lime green to create a wide variety of decor styles and themes. Lime green looks sophisticated when paired with white, or modern when complemented by silver items. The vibrant colour is very versatile, and a little lime green goes a long way. Use green paint to add a pop of colour to a space. Decorate with lime green accessories to balance the sweetness of a pastel-hued room.

Enhance your living room with a nature theme. Paint the walls with a vibrant lime green hue to set the stage for nature-inspired decor. Buy a white couch and love seat set for a fresh look. Decorate with white vases filled with citrus-coloured flowers, such as yellow and orange daisies and tulips. Fill shelves with porcelain bird figurines.

Decorate a bedroom with a modern design. If the space has boring white walls, choose brightly coloured accessories and decor. Buy a bed comforter featuring bold lime green and navy blue geometric designs. Cover wood floors with fluffy lime green rugs. Pick a work desk, night stand and standing lamp featuring shiny silver legs and hardware.

Transform a boring kitchen into a vibrantly hued space. Start with crisp white counter tops and walls. Update a wood kitchen table and chair set by painting the legs white. Enhance the chairs with lime green cushions. Create a fresh-looking table centrepiece by filling a clear glass bowl with lemons, limes and oranges. Choose lime green accessories, such as a tea pot and blender, for an unexpected accent.

Decorate a child's bathroom with a whimsical frog theme. Hang a shower curtain featuring lime green lily pad designs. Display white towels featuring green frog patterns. For function and style, buy a lime green lily pad-shaped soap dish.

Create a garden-inspired sun room. Use soft pink details to balance bright lime green decor items. Decorate white wicker furniture with pink and green floral-patterned cushions. Set out lime green vases filled with delicate pink roses or orchids.
