For 2017, Pantone chose Greenery as the color of the year. This zesty color “signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate”, according to Pantone. The fresh hue evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore, and renew. The color may seem a little tough to work with, but here are some ideas to incorporate into your home:
Through Nature Literally add some greenery! Add a few great plants in a simple vase for a pop of color in a dramatic accent that won’t overpower a room.
In the Kitchen Green is a great color for kitchens and promotes digestion, according to Feng shui. Use green utensils, canisters, oven mitts, dishtowels, and more to add a pop of color against beautiful granites and marbles.
In the Kids’ Room Green is a fab choice for a gender-neutral bedroom or playroom that also stimulates imagination. Add green to furniture, bedding, and even wall paper for added fun.
Create a Focal Point In a sea of beige or griege, adding a vibrant green sofa or coffee table instantly creates focus and let’s you build out the room from there.
Through Linens If you’re unready to commit to the color, start with window treatments and pillows. Pair neutral hues with green for a burst of color that invigorates your home.
