Lime green is a refreshing color, whether one chooses to wear it or use it to paint a room. Paired with the right color, it can make a striking statement. For example, use lime green to paint an accent wall in the master bath. Create a spa-like atmosphere with pure white accents such as towels, toothbrush holders and vanity chair. Add a splash of contrasting color with artwork using a teal and chocolate palette. Perhaps consider a shower curtain in a subdued pattern that showcases all of the colors in the room.

A person's coloring determines whether or not lime green is the best choice for clothing. Most people can wear lime green accents with no problem, but only those with the right coloring such as those with blonde, ash blonde or gray hair should try to wear bigger pieces. A lime green accent such as a scarf, purse or belt looks nice with a butter yellow sundress. A lime green shirt, on the other hand, can be accented with a red brooch, orange scarf or pink purse.

    What is the difference between warm and cool colors?

    A:

    The distinction between warm and cool colors, not understood until the late 18th century, is based on perceived temperature. Those colors with a warm bias, evoke images of sun and fire, and generally include the hues red through yellow (plus browns and tans), while those with a cool bias are associated with an overcast day and include hues from blue-green through blue-violet (plus most grays). Blacks may have either a warm or cool bias.
