Base Color Lime—just add Fuchsia, Turquoise
In less able hands, bright colors such as the ones in this room by Deb Reinhart (debreinhart.com) might seem childish. But when combined in sophisticated accents, fuchsia, turquoise, and lime evoke just the right sense of fun. Maintaining a roughly equal representation of each member of this trio is the key to pulling it off.
“This color combination reminds me of a rainforest I visited on Vancouver Island—I just love the brightness and the balance of it. I think this is an inviting room that would suit lots of tastes.” —Deb Reinhart
