Have you heard the news? Greenery is Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year! I love this choice because it’s so organic and earthy. The color green comes in so many shades from kelly to sage to yellow and blue tones. Pantone Greenery is a bright yellow-green that portrays spring and summer in all their loveliness. If you’re ready to add this fresh color to your decor, you’re sure to find inspiring examples here. (Some images are from Houzz – click on photo to be taken to original source.)
The pairing of green and white is a classic farmhouse color combination. Consider painting a chair in this spring-fresh color.
Pantone Greenery makes a wonderful accent color at the back of a book case. A green lampshade and comfy throw continue the color into the rest of this living room.
If you fear you might tire of Pantone Greenery in a room, add the trend-setting color in the form of pillows that are easy to swap out.
Dining chairs wear a touch of yellow-green in a neutral-toned room.
Are you a little more daring when it comes to decorating? Paint half a wall with Pantone Greenery.
If you love exploring with bright colors, paint the entire wall! I remember seeing a designer on HGTV paint a bathroom a pretty shade of apple green. I tried it in my own bathroom but couldn’t live with it. I’m just not that brave. Here, electric blue balances the green while white adds the right amount of crispness to keep the room from becoming overpowering.
A softer shade of the same yellow-green might wear better with your preference for calm spaces.
A cool blue bathroom gets a shot of greenery in the form of valances above the windows.
A fun patterned wallpaper and bedding elements lend dots of greenery in a cottage-style bedroom.
Perhaps the best way to add Pantone Greenery to any room is with … well, fresh greens!
