There are certain colors that pack more than visual appeal. They also evoke powerfully strong (and hopefully positive) sense memories that further our desire to include that color in our home. Some hues easily achieve this status because they also connect to a readily identifiable taste or scent. Others because they are associated with life events. We think you’ll agree, our July Color of the Month makes for a delicious and refreshing experience, whether you taste it, drink it, smell it or simply lay eyes on it. Check out our favorite indoor and outdoor decor finds that sport this color (it’s July, after all!), plus three inspirational rooms. Then let us know, what happy memory does this hue bring up for you, and how do you (or will you) incorporate it in your home? I’ve included my answers in the comments at the end. We hope you will, too!

    Great color for fruit, and occasional splashes of color, can't imagine living with it, but the pics show it tastefully and beautifully used. I, too, liked the lavender and lime bedroom.

    I am using lime as an accent color in my kitchen and family room (open floor plan)….against "sand" colored walls. It is such a fresh and energizing color….love it! I love these pictures….esp the aubergine and lime room. I am sitting on my lime colored leather chair at my espresso colored desk.

    if people would make it look like the photo shown I would love it… but most are too tacky to do so.

    That colors not for me! Pretty but no!
    Would not work in the Southwest.

      I disagree I live in the southwest and I think having some green indoors is great. These colors were in my room when I was in high school (well it was lime, orange and yellow) I do interior design work in southern AZ and I love to do what is not always expected.
