A Huge Pop of Color with Black, Turquoise and Lime Green

Black, Turquoise & Lime Green Runner

If you’re a member of “Team Color” in the Color vs Neutral Debate then this may be a color combination for you!

It definitely worked beautifully to create one set of window treatments, one table runner and two pillows for Laura’s breakfast room and adjoining living room.

Black Turquoise & Lime Green Runner Laura and I live a couple of hours away from each other. Our first meeting was for a day of shopping where Laura picked out the aqua and brown color scheme for her master bedroom as well as this stunning multi-colored floral for her breakfast room. The rest of our collaboration took place via emails, phone calls and possibly a few text messages as well.

Black, Turquoise and Lime Green Runner We choose to make simple, floor length, pinch pleated panels out of the black floral for her breakfast room. (Sorry, no photos of window treatments)  

Turquoise, Black and Lime Green RunnerThe runner was made to fit Laura’s breakfast room table. I mixed the black floral, a lime green (which actually has a chevron pattern woven in) with a colorful tassel fringe and a turquoise silk. The runner is lined with a similar lime green polyester.

Black & Lime Green PillowThe pillow, one of a pair, is backed and self corded in the lime chevron. Laura is using the pillows on a leather sofa in her adjacent living room.

Black, Turquoise, Lime Green Runner & PillowThe floral, lime chevron and tassel fringe were all purchased at Interior Fabrics. The turquoise silk was a remnant. 


Who’s side are you on in the Color vs Neutral debate?


I’m so fickle neither team can count on me. I switch sides almost daily. :)
