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!

    Love the rug, mirror, & crib in 2nd grouping…and ALL the outdoor selections! Lime can be taken anywhere from cottage-y to sophisticated. I like my subtle mosses for relaxation, but lime is fun & energizing.

    NATURE PROVIDES GUIDELINES AS TO THE COLORS SEASON.-
    THE DIFFERENT SHADES OF GREEN PLANS.
    THE NUMBER OF DIFFERENT COLORS IN THE FLOWERS.
    THE FORCE WITH WHICH THE SUN REFLECTS THE BLUE OF THE SEA,
    THE JOY AND EVEN THE FLUTTER OF BIRDS FLYING FROM FLOWER TO FLOWER,
    DESIGN INSPIRATION THIS SEASON.

    What great ideas! My kitchen has a lot of red, and I think the right shade of lime on the backsplash and around the windows would be perfect! Right now it's just off white. Can't wait to try it!

      Hi! Depending on what shade of red (warm vs.cool) I think adding just splashes of lime would greatly enhance your kitchen :) Try adding a sweet potato plant, a picture here or there with lime colors, or even a family pic with a lime matte or frame would be cute. I love decorating and have a vivid, creative mind…hope u don't mind my input :)

    Recently painted my Great Room lime with chocolate and orange accents. LOOKS AWESOME!

  9. I've been using greens a lot lately and can't seem to stay away from them. Green is one of my favorites to use in interior spaces! I find these light, airy, bright greens refreshing (as others have similarly mentioned). Infusing some of the "outdoors" with your interior space creates a sense of harmony and balance.

    I've been using Lime and Red since I redecorated in 2006 and love it still. It's in my LR and Kitchen and bath. :)
