Key lime? Visiting others is the best way to learn new tricks and get out of your own design ruts.
Brenda and Dave took their small top floor apartment (thats the inside of the roof that is slanting down), and painted it white with strong shots of color in the "inbetween" spaces. This strong green is on one wall between the kitchen and the living room...
It has bookshelves and two lights on it, but otherwise it is an art gallery perfect green wall.
Personally, our rut is that we always go with warm colors in living spaces. This green is more cool than warm, but it is exciting, edgy and fun in a space that wasn't before Brenda and Dave moved in. (Thanks, B&D!) MGR
