2017 Color of the Year and 3 Ways to Use It
January 30, 2017

Pantone has announced its 2017 color of the year, GREENERY. This soft, soothing tone creates a warm and gentle mood. Recent design trends have been heavily influenced by a desire to reconnect with nature, as well as with other people. This organic reach transcends design and is connecting with people on a deeper level. So, in order to find the perfect color to represent this spirit, Pantone looked to nature for inspiration. GREENERY is a fresh color that brings the feeling of spring, where the snow melts away and the greens are revived, restored and renewed. Nature’s neutral color is symbolic of new beginnings.

Spruce up your home décor with a little touch of Greenery. Here are three easy and inexpensive ways to use it:

1) Plants:
Greenery comes from nature, so it makes sense that the easiest way to incorporate it is by adding plants to your home. Bring the outdoors in and breathe fresh air into your abode to reinvigorate your space. There are many areas of the home that welcome living, breathing design. Corners of living rooms, dining tables, and countertops are a few easy places to start!

2) Home Accessories
Accessorizing is another easy way to liven up your space without breaking the bank. Add some greenery in areas where you entertain and where you go for relaxation. You can throw some fresh new pillows on the sofa, add a nice lamp or new lampshade on nightstands, or add new vases on the coffee table. Simple, effective solutions for a soothing, yet vibrant mood. Adding a pop of color always creates an inviting and fun environment.

3) Furniture
New or reimagined furniture is another way to adopt this beautiful color into your palette. A new sofa or chair can bring a new vitality to your furniture ensemble. New cabinets or drawers can liven up a traditional pantry, or even just a fresh new coat of paint can give a new spin on the same old designs. There are a variety of options you can try that will make your space feel modern and joyful. Don't be afraid. There are no limits. And it doesn't take much to make a big difference!
