Color Roundup: Chartreuse, Lime and Apple Green in Interior Design

By Lindaleyble @LindaLeyble

Since I’ve been planning on decorating another guest room in my house, I’ve been thinking long and hard about using chartreuse or lime green fabrics in it.  It’s the smallest bedroom in my house {vacated not too long ago by one of my stepsons} which now houses a lot of my home staging accessories, fabrics, wrapping papers and other items that come and go in my home. I am thinking of keeping the walls light – probably white – and adding some lovely fabrics in the lime green family. I love the vibrancy of this color family – it makes me so happy to see it.  So, I thought my readers might want to see some of the color ideas I’ve collected in this palette.

Paired with fuchsia, white and orange, it’s a color pairing that’s great for a bedroom
