It’s no secret that most children prefer bright, vibrant colours over soft, subtle neutrals. Whether you’re decorating your teenager’s retreat or your toddler’s nursery, lime is guaranteed to inject a dose of youthful vitality and a sense of playful fun into any space.

An energetic, positive colour that mixes happily with touches of other bright shades, lime can serve as the primary colour of your room or works just as well as an accent hue, adding interest to other colours. Pair lime and lavender to create a soothing yet creative vibe in your child’s nursery or tone it down in a teen’s room by teaming pops of lime with a cool neutral pale grey walls and crisp white woodwork.
