Decorating Ideas for Lime Green Walls

Updated February 21, 2017

Have fun with colour by painting your walls a fresh, lime green shade. Decorating with green is more versatile than you may think, and the shade will add a refreshing pop of colour to any room in your home. Using the lime green colour as inspiration, decorate the room with a tropical or rainforest theme, or use it as a backdrop for an eco-friendly style. The walls will brighten up any room during the winter, or provide the perfect setting for summer-inspired decor.

Eco-Friendly Design

Using the lime green walls as inspiration, create an eco-friendly space. Set out live plants, which will add to the ambience while clearing the air of pollutants. Choose furniture made out of recycled wood and use bamboo flooring. Use nontoxic paints and buy chair cushions made out of organic cotton. Choose decor in nature-inspired shades, such as coral, pomegranate red and sunny yellow.

A Crisp Look

Choose white furniture and decor for a clean, crisp look. Lime green walls will take on a sophisticated look when paired with bright white couches, chairs and rugs. Hang green and white curtains, and decorate with bold and silver-tone mirrors and vases. For an extra pop of colour, decorate with elegant pink orchids.

Rainforest Theme

Enhance a bedroom with lime green walls by decorating with a rainforest theme. Set out pots of tropical plants, and buy jungle-inspired furniture made out of wicker, eco-friendly bamboo or recycled wood. Hang a rainforest-themed border around the wall, and choose brightly coloured bedding in shades of orange, yellow and blue.

Cool Aqua Accents

Complement the bright green walls by choosing aqua accents and decor. The colours pair surprisingly well to create a fun, refreshing look. Choose lime green chairs with aqua pillows, and enhance a lamp with an aqua shade. Ground the bold look by adding touches of brown, such as a wood table, and white.

Retro Look

Create a retro look by enhancing lime green walls with black and white decor. Hang vintage movie posters and black and white photos on the walls. Use retro-inspired black and white tiles on the floor. In the living room, set out polka dot pillows on a sleek black couch.
