Lime Fresh

If you were in Australia this past weekend, you probably had three days off instead of two. It was just lovely to have that extra day. I managed to spend it in the kitchen which is something I love to do but these days rarely get the pleasure.

Our lime tree is laden with fruit at the moment, so I decided to make lime butter. It’s just like lemon butter only replace the lemons with limes. I keep it in the fridge and use it in tart shells with a dollop of Double Cream. Simply irresistible!

It got me to thinking about lime interiors. I don’t think I’ve decorated a house or a room using lime. Green, yes but not the zingy freshness of lime.

I would like to use it in small doses as a pop for other colours. But there are some brave people out there that have used it in bolder forms.

  1. Lime looks very well in those images. I guess there’s mossy lime and neon lime, and I’m not brave enough for the latter, but the counterbalance of white is beautiful with the former.

  2. I do love this colour Jennifer, but lack the courage to use it more! Your lime butter lavishly spread over toast sounds scrumptious.

  3. I love the lime, Jennifer! Have a great weekend.

  4. Dear Jennifer,
    What a wonderful, vibrant, fresh colour lime is. It looks so wonderful in the rooms that you have shown. I am a bit of a coward when it comes to colour and tend to stick to the neutrals. I really must try and be a little braver !!!!
    Many thanks for your wonderful comment on my giveaway post. You are very kind. I’m so sorry if I have neglected you but I find it sooooo difficult to comment on everyones blogs !! I feel as if I’m on the computer all day as it is and housework and life in general gets neglected !! …but I am truly grateful for your loyalty and support.
    Have a lovely new week. XXXX
