Fall Color Combo: Lime + Purple


I love bold and surprising color combos. A while back I posted this beautifully bright dining room by Katie Ridder and I was just crazy for the lively color pairing of lime green and purple. It is so energetic and perfect for autumn too! The key is to be sure to add accents in black or deep brown to ground the space and also to mix varying tones of purple in the space {think not too matchy!} 

What do you think of this daring color contrast . . . too much or just right?








It's also such a lovely color palette for floral arrangements and beautiful for entertaining. Hmmm, might just be perfect for my Thanksgiving dinner party here in Singapore . . .

Those rooms are great! I love how the lime green provides such energy, and the purple really grounds the space.

As decor goes, this is way more color than I can handle but in a flower arrangement like the beauty you've featured, its perfection. Totally love it for turkey day.

I love the color combo but it's not for me. I must admit, green and purple are not my favorite colors.

I think for this color combo, you have to do it just right or it could be too much. I'm lusting over the third image. I love that there is just one larger piece of furniture that is purple and that the rest of the purple is incorporated through accent pieces. The white couch, drapes, and throw help tie the colors together. In the words of RZ, I die. So gorgeous.
