Summer Shade Combo: Blue and Green
Ever since I was a young preppy, I’ve loved green and blue together. The preppy look was always a combination of navy blue and Kelly green, but now designers are providing it an update. Vibrant apple and lime paired with turquoise or teal are a dynamic combination. Here are 10 ways to integrate the summery pair in your decor.

1. Glean inspiration from sea glass. The glass pendant, headboard accents and brushstroke patterns on the pillows combine colors of apple green and heavy watery blues in this bedroom.
2. Tie in your beach towels. If you are like me, your beach towel set is most likely a mishmash of uncoordinated, threadbare specimens. Keep an eye out for end-of-summer earnings and treat your self to fresh fitting ones which you can hang with pride. (Check with local animal shelters to see if they could use your older ones.) Turquoise and lime towels can enliven a wall using beachy style.
3. Let tender blue soothe in the bedroom. Use cool blue on the partitions, then chalk it up with bright green accents.

4. Construct in white area. This room uses darker greens and blues, but it remains light as a result of the well-edited usage of color.

5. Energize a space with a accent piece. A glowing green slipper chair gives this white and navy palette a playful jolt.

6. Start with the basics and coating on color. A neutral base of tans, creams and browns calms popsicle pastels in lime green and aqua in this living room.

7. Take the look outdoors. Rich jewel tones include a sumptuous texture to this Moroccan-inspired covered terrace in Texas.

8. Publish a bold hue using a softer one. Bright lime green accents give this room plenty of bold color, while the blues require a longer muted backseat.

9. Go for bright stripes. Notice that in this jewel box of a toilet, they utilized one constant shade of blue and then mixed in sage, moss and acidity green stripes.
10. Mix patterns in green and blue. Solids, stripes, botanicals and even a giraffe pattern play nice together against the crisp, white backdrop of Benjamin Moore’s Decorator’s White.
