Colour Your World | #27 Lime Punch

Oh hello sunshine! So nice to see you.

This weeks’ predicted heatwave has finally arrived and I’m sitting here feeling a warmth that — unusually — isn’t coming from the central heating; for the first time in months.

I think spring is actually here at last. A little late to the party but fashionably so, suited and booted in all it’s green glory.

Our garden is starting to wake after its long winter slumber; the tulips are almost out and there are green shoots on the cherry tree.

I love this time of year.

The ‘newness’ and zesty greenness, that seems to be everywhere you look, is such an antidote to the greyness of the colder months.

Which is a fantastic coincidence, as the next colour in my Colour Your World series is Pantone Lime Punch.

A vibrant green that is the perfect colour to reflect this time of year; its acid good looks are just what’s needed after such a long winter.

Pantone say;

‘Sharp and pungent, Lime Punch hits a chord with its strident and striking citrus like presence in the Spring 2018 palette.’

I say — punch me with your limey freshness!

It might not be to everyone’s taste — particularly in large quantities — but a little shot of Pantone Lime Punch, paired with fresh white or inky dark navy, is a lovely thing.

Even if it’s in the form of a simple cushion or mug.

We’ve had quite a few greens, so far, in this colour series.

Pantone Lime Punch isn’t a million miles away from last year’s colour of the year — Greenery — although that was much grassier and had a little more blue in the mix.

Whereas Woodbine and Treetop, which I’ve featured already, are right down at the other end of the spectrum; much deeper and darker in tone.

Lime Punch is a fresh, zingy green; with an almost perfect balance of blue and yellow.

The colour of new shoots and fresh beginnings.

The colour of spring.

    I’ve got a bright, lime Le Creuset set of baking dishes. They went well in my kitchen of 2 houses previous, but now not so much (light blue tiles). I still love them though! hehe

    I think this is lovely as an accent colour. My daughter used to have lime green and cerise pink as accent colours in a white bedroom – so fresh and punchy (as you say!). I also think it looks fab in a kitchen. Perfect for spring :) x

      Me too! It’s so fresh isn’t it? I don;t think I could cope with a whole roomful of it, but little pops of it here and there are lovely :)

    I know several people who love this colour but it just isn’t mine. Looking forward to Almost Mauve though! #HomeEtc

      We had a feature wall painted in this colour in our first kitchen — and navy blue and lime accessories!! Not sure I would be happy to have that in my house nowadays!!

    I love a bit of zing – and love this colour. Thanks for hosting #homeetc – just read your comment about a navy and lime kitchen – I had one of those too, but was talked out of stripes!

      Aaah me too!! So nice to have a pop of colour every now and then. And YES — how funny! Was it in the 90s???
