Choosing House Colors: Lime Green?

January 3, 2012 § 2 Comments

In many neighborhoods, the homeowners who chose this house color might be run out of town but not in this neighborhood where the color is prevalent in nature. The lime green (bordering on neon) fits right in! We see it here in the rainforest of El Yunque in Puerto Rico. What a happy, stimulating hue! And how appropriate to borrow it for a house color on that island paradise. It helps to pair this strong acidic color with a coffee brown or even black just to balance out the palette. But it works.

Use your home’s environment as inspiration when choosing a house color. But if you do not see the color in nature’s palette, then reserve the color for inside. Otherwise, your home might become a lighthouse beacon in the neighborhood. Great for identifying your house in the dark, but that’s about it!

    I have to tell you – I think it is ugly no matter if it is in the jungle or in a city or town.

    Hi Clayetta, Well, that kind of vivid, Crayola color is certainly not for everybody. Thanks for weighing in… 😉
