Summertime Lime Green bedroom ideas…

The zesty youthfulness of lime green evokes images of summertime and carefree days. As one of the most vibrant of all colours it’s an extrovert shade that requires careful handling when it comes to room décor, where strategic accents of lime green scattered throughout a room can still make a large impact. Surprisingly perhaps, lime green is a versatile colour that can form the basis of many room designs, such as vamping up a feminine room, or integrating happily to play up a retro or contemporary theme. Use it in the nursery, as the inspiration for a son or daughter’s room, or even to add more spice to adult bedroom décor, whenever a jazzy modern twist is the order of the day…

For a bold bedroom statement lime green can serve as the main backdrop colour for your room, complemented by supporting accent colours, or for quieter themes as an accent colour in its own right adding interest and impact to other room colour combinations. Popular colour partnerships include lime green and hot pink for feisty teen bedroom décor, or lime green and sky blue for an exotic tropical vibe. Lime green and purple is another interesting combination that can work well in a nursery, child’s room or guest room, or consider sparking interest in a primarily neutral room of chocolate brown and cream with bold lime green accessories and fabric choices. For extrovert schemes lime green and yellow is one to consider although perhaps a little too vibrant for many tastes, whilst black and white room style, including zebra prints and polka dots, provide the perfect background contrast for lime green accents to make the boldest of colour statements.

An all-wall lime green wall paint job might be too much for most bedroom makeovers, but taming things down a littleby painting just one accent wall lime green, or by incorporating a lime green pattern, gives the room a whole new perspective. Consider balancing those green elements with turquoise or sky blue stripes or polka dots for a fun vibe, or paint lime green and white polka dots on a chocolate brown wall. You might even choose to incorporate bold geometric patterns in the form of removable wall decals for those that enjoy a constant change of scene or for seasonal décor variation.

Look for lighter coloured wooden bed designs in painted white finishes, or light natural wood finishes to lend a coastal flavour to lime green and blue bedrooms, or to tone down a child’s lime green and hot pink bedroom. A contemporary styled white or ivory metal bed design will be equally at home here, whilst an iron bedstead in a darker finish or a dark grained wooden bedstead and matching furniture, looks great in a modern room space with a predominantly neutral palette featuring just a hint of lime green, or to tame a yellow and lime greenroom. Black modern beds and furniture harmonise with many room aesthetics that feature lime green accents, and provide the ideal partnership for black and white and lime green room décor. For a pop of colour paint one piece of furniture such as an old chest, bookcase or chest of drawers lime green if you’d like it to stand out against a white or dark mocha brown wall background.

Pull the scheme together with lime green accessories, particularly in more restrained neutral colour rooms. For example, a lime green area rug can have great impact in the room if it’s placed centre-stage at the foot of that stylish contemporary metal bed, or consider a rug featuring animal stripes, polka dots or a geometric pattern to tone down the impact of loud lime green room style. Curtains, bedding, scatter cushions or a green reupholstered chair, are other ways to flood a neutral room with lime green accents, or to simply add a hint of this zesty colour. Smaller accessories go a long way in this respect, perhaps in the form of a cluster of lime green candles atop a dresser or mantel or a furry green lampshade on a bedside table for the perfect vibrant final flourish…
