Sharp, fresh and zingy (just like the tasty fruit from which it takes its name), the colour lime sits three-quarters of the way between yellow and green. It’s a bright and breezy hue that evokes feelings of youth, playfulness, energy and positivity.

Some people believe that lime offers a sense of hope, anticipation and encouragement, inspiring a fresh outlook and has the potential to renew your vital energy. If you feel you could benefit from a fresh start, consider introducing a little luscious lime into your home. Pair lime green walls with white woodwork for a crisp, modern look, or punctuate an neutral interior with lively lime green accessories, like cushions or a striped pink-and-lime throw rug.
