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!

  1. [...] you catch Anna’s July Color of the Month post last week? Lime is HGTV’s top trending hue for July, and I agree — it’s a perfect [...]

    Lime is delicious! Cool and hot, sweet and tangy all at the same time!I think green is one of the most flexible of colors. Electric Lime ( I always thought it was an "unnatural color till I saw the rice fields in southern India), pure bluegreen, and subtle graygreens, and earthy greens, all mix very happily together. I think it's because we're used to seeing them mixed up in nature. Even within one tree there are several shades of green depending on whether its in sun or shade, new or mature growth.

      O yeah! I forgot to tell you, lime green, spring green is featured all over my home. Love, Love, Love it!

    • Anna@HGTV says:

      Absolutely. And nothing like a trip to India for a dynamic perspective on color!

  3. Gina says:

    I have spring green on the wall in my kitchen against cherry cabinets, really make 'em pop! The accents are red an it's terrific!

    Lime? I call it Kiwi and I love it! Kiwi and blue or Kiwi and lavendar… beautiful!

  6. HappyHomeowner says:

    EEK! Try a panel of the lime you think you might like == then wait a few weeks! If it's still attractive to you, consider the resale value of a home with a lime backsplash and woodwork in the red and white kitchen == if you still think it's great, go ahead and do it! I'd suggest you just replace the red with lime and come up with a cool simple update. You'll probably have some $$ left for a few of the lime accessories in the promo piece.

    Love the lime green!!! It's powerful, energizing and revitalizing!

  8. Carolyn says:

    Thank you for picking my favorite color…I'm a sucker for anything in this color…..sometimes it's almost a neutral…goes w/ everything…..I love it best in small pops ….food, clothing, kitchen tools, decorating!!

  9. Ellen says:

    I LOVE the flavor, aroma and look of lime- whether it is a peaceful bedroom, energizing pillow or linen combo,backdrop wall or… savoring a cool minty mojito or a refreshing limeade punch on my garden deck!!!
