Citrus colors are always great for summer decor. Just the names make you long for a cool iced drink: Tangerine, Lemon, Orange, Grapefruit…  but for me the best color for summer 2016 is LIME!

Here are few great examples of how lime can add the bold pop and fun you need this year:


Minimal and perfect for a modern patio, this is the CB2 mesh chaise. Where’s my pool boy?


Twilight highlights the glamour and aura of a Moroccan home, bright and glowing against the midnight blue walls!


Art Deco is resurrected in this lime, black and gold bar featured in a hotel in Monaco. The chairs are luxurious and sexy on gold tips. Bring me that martini … shaken, not stirred!


I could spend all afternoon here. The mix with blue and white, the patterns, the pairing of upholstery and wicker. It just all works. Even the plants seem to be reaching to touch the lime green settee!


Modern, retro and clean. Lucite chairs with lime upholstery on a white painted floor. The curves of the chairs paired with the hard corners of the black glass table just invite a dinner party.

So try some lime green in your home this summer – maybe go the full on citrus palette? Have an awesome summer.
