Pantone’s 2017 color of the year, Greenery, is a fun and fresh shade of green that is the perfect way to brighten up your home in time for spring. It’s a yellow-green shade that connects us with nature and pairs perfectly with a variety of colors.
I was recently inspired by Douglas Elliman’s Florida real estate team to create a style board using decorative pieces inspired by the color Greenery. I love the color green and use it a lot throughout my home as an accent color, but I have used it as a base color in my home as well. I particularly love Greenery because it stands out and I chose pieces for my style board that can do just that.
I also thought they were all nice modern touches and tried to keep within a reasonable price. The beautiful Olive artwork and the succulents are the perfect reminder of nature in addition to the green tones. I do have a few live houseplants but I admit I have a hard time keeping them in good shape, so I added the faux succulents because they look nice all the time even if your houseplants are suffering like mine.
As someone who loves vintage pieces, I had to include the green mid-century modern chair. That would definitely stand out in any room, not only with that shade of green, but with the added touches of the tufted back and the beautiful gold legs.
I have shades of green all throughout my home as an accent. Although Greenery is the perfect spring shade, it’s a nice cheery color to include in your decor throughout the year.
These green salad plates from World Market were just what our DIY Farmhouse table needed! I have a mix of blues, yellows, and greens in our kitchen, which is a bright and colorful room…
My Great Grandmothers decanter set is a deeper shade of green but it still stands out so beautifully on our bar cart. This is in our living room/dining room which has more toned-down and deeper shades. I have a mix of vintage and rustic pieces in this room so I didn’t go with brighter colors in here.
Green shows up again as an accent color in my daughter’s room, which is a mix of vintage and family pieces. Her chifferobe was a thrift store find that I restored and painted with a pretty shade of green and the floral painting above her bed was found in that same thrift shop for just $5!
This green chair is a great accent piece in my son’s bedroom to bring color to this desk I painted white. We found the chair at IKEA for under $20!
These green vases I found at Ross add the right amount of color to our mid-century TV console without taking over too much. Just a touch of green!
What do you think of Pantone’s color of the year? Do you enjoy this bright and cheery shade of green? I think it’s perfect and has inspired me to start looking for a shade of green to brighten up our dutch door in our kitchen.
