Aqua and lime are such fun, lively colors that they are a natural fit for fun, lively spaces! Of course, because those colors are generally considered gender-neutral, they are also a natural fit for anything having to do with boy-girl twins … like these precious birthday twins. I am looooving those cutie patooties in their cutie patootie outfits. It is a darn good thing that I didn’t have boy-girl twins or — given my obsession with matching/coordinated clothing — I may have sold my soul to Kelly’s Kids.
I’m guessing those sweet babies and their mom would adore a nursery in those colors! Fuchsia accents would make an aqua and lime color scheme more feminine, and chocolate brown would make it more boyish.
Of course, you’ve probably already realized that I’m a fan … because I used aqua and lime in my twin boys’ bedroom! Their vintage campaign dresser is painted Benjamin Moore Dill Pickle 2147-40, which is hands-down my favorite yellow-green. But let’s get back to dreaming about a lazy afternoon in the sunroom.
Do you have a favorite aqua, lime or other gender-neutral paint color? Do share!
