Last week the Pantone color of the year was announced: Greenery
“We know what kind of world we are living in: one that is very stressful and very tense. This is the color of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature. It speaks to what we call the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew. Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground. It is something life affirming to look forward to.” —Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
This bold shade of green can be intimidating. But we've rounded up some more subtle ways to incorporate Greenery into your home decor.
Try adding a bit of pop to your dining chairs. Weather through a cushion or the full upholstery, its a fun change that adds quite a bit of elegance. We love hoe both of these spaces mixed Greenery with graphic patterns and dark finishes.
Painting out a single, smaller piece of furniture is probably the easiest way to bring Greenery into your home. A vanity in the bathroom, some side chairs, or a headboard would all be great pieces to try in this fresh hue.
Ok, so maybe we were kidding when we said painting a small piece of furniture was the easiest way to bring in green. Because truthfully, adding a few fun house plants is probably the easiest way to add Greenery to any space in your home. Tropical plants and some cactus are the perfect shade to keep things fresh, and we love the texture they bring to any space.
