Pantone recently announced the 2017 Color of the Year and it’s “Greenery” – a very bright green. Usually, a color you don’t associate with home decor, but over the last year, green has slowly been creeping into people’s homes everywhere. Whether it’s a fun and bright shade or a slightly muted shade, you’ll be seeing a lot more of this color in the new year. There are many ways you can use it in your home on a very small scale or a larger scale. If you’re a fan of green, there’s a lot of inspiration out there to help you incorporate it into your own space.
This cute little kid’s room from Julia Ryan is the perfect way to add a touch of this bright color to a space. It works well here since the rest of the decor is neutral. It helps the bed pop and really be the focal point of the space. It’s definitely gender neutral as well!
If you’re looking for a more subtle way to add green to your home, pillows are the perfect choice. These fun floral ones from East & Nest would be great to use in the spring and summer months.
If you want to go all in and make green a more prominent color in your palette, this room does exactly that. From the curtains to the chairs, to the flowers and decor, they all make a very bold statement. Pairing it with black helps to balance the space out and not overwhelm the eyes.
Another way to bring this color into your home is by painting your walls like The Avarice did. The green pops so well and is perfect in this little nursery. Paint is one of the easiest ways to bring color into your home. And if you don’t like it, you can always paint over it! With the use of multiple colors in this space, it allows the green to blend in and not feel overwhelming.
204 Park brought some green into their home with a couch. Against the white walls, this show stopper stands out just enough to catch your eye. It’s a little more subtle shade of greenery, but it grounds this space and creates such an inviting environment.
If you’re on board with Pantone’s choice for Color of the Year for 2017, there are so many ways you can use it around your house. If you’re scared of going all out, start small with some actual greenery or flowers, or even napkins or dish towels. If you want to be a little more dramatic, large pieces of furniture and painted walls will help you achieve that. Just try and keep the rest of the decor a little more neutral so the space doesn’t feel too heavy. With such a strong color, it’s all about balance. You don’t want you or your guests to feel overwhelmed by the color. Just keep it simple and don’t be afraid to try something new! You’ll never know if you like something until you do!
