Kathryn, the creative genius behind snippet & ink, recently posted a citron and blackberry inspiration board. While I love that color scheme--lime green and deep purple--she didn't seem convinced it worked (though it was popular with her readers!).
I decided to give a citron and blueberry (rather than blackberry) board a try. The combination of the in-your-face lime green with classic navy tones the combo down a little bit, for those who are wary of too much bold color. Also, blue and green are neighbors on the color wheel, while purple and green are near opposites, so there is a little bit less contrast in the citron and blueberry combination.
Another take on the citron and blackberry combination is grass green and blackberry. This green and purple combo still has a lot of contrast, but the effect is calmer and more subtle when the green is made cooler and deeper. Check for my grass green and blackberry inspiration board tomorrow!
