It IS Easy Being Green: How to Work Pantone’s Color of the Year into Your Home

It’s a new year which means a fresh start.  It’s time to take a look at the year ahead of us and decide what we want to change from the year that just ended.  For some of us that may involve sprucing up our interior spaces a bit.  If you’re looking for some inspiration a great place to start is Pantone’s Color of the Year.  For 2017 Pantone chose Greenery as the color of the year.  Symbolic of new beginnings, this color is meant to evoke the first days of spring, when the greens of nature start to return.  Green is one of nature’s neutrals, so while it may seem bold, don’t be afraid to mix it into your decor with other colors.


There are so many different ways to incorporate Greenery into your home; how you decide to do so really depends on your level of commitment to the color.  If you really love the color and are willing to make a bit of an investment a sofa or lounge chair is a great way to go.  By making this revitalizing color the main attraction of the room you can really give the space a new, fresh energy.


If you want to add green in a bold way but are slightly commitment-phobic a temporary wallpaper may be the choice for you.  You can easily surround yourself with green, but also easily take it down if you end up not liking it, or want to change it every year with the new color.  You can also use temporary wallpaper to update your existing furniture in a unique way.


If  you’re interested in adding Greenery to your home, but don’t want to make it your main color there are tons of accessories that will let you add a pop of green to your space.  Rugs are a great way to help tie the room together along with pillows and throws.  Of course there’s always classic tabletop accessories like bowls and vases that can help add just the right amount of color.  Obviously you can add some plants to your room for some natural greenery, but even something as simple as a clock can re-energize the room.


Whatever your level of commitment to Greenery may be, there’s a plethora of options to choose from when updating your space.  Even just a few small changes can help your room feel bright and new.  Pantone’s Color of the Year gives you a wonderful chance to have fun with your interior design choices, and we know we’re looking forward to a refreshing new year, full of bold color and stylish, comfy furniture.
