8 Ways to Use Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year in Your Home
“Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnections we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” —Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
Pantone made a bold departure from the subdued soft pink and blue of last year’s colors of the year (Rose Quartz and Serenity), when they crowned Greenery Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year.
Greenery’s nod to nature reflects what Pantone believes our culture needs: rejuvenation, revitalization, and renewal. With just a few small enhancements you can instantly modernize your home to take advantage of this new trend.
How to Use Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year in Your Home
Every year, Pantone selects a color that they believe symbolizes the mood and attitude of our global culture. Greenery’s yellow-green shade inspires us to recall the freshness of foliage in spring and reminds us to take a deep breath and rejuvenate. As nature’s neutral, green complements many palettes and reconnects us to the natural world. With just an accent, it can add vitality, earthiness, and rejuvenation to any home. Here are 8 ideas to get you started:
- Window treatments
When you’re not ready to jump in with both feet, updating your window treatments to highlight the new color is a nice way to incorporate the latest trend in your home.
A couple of accent pillows that have the Greenery color will be just the tie-in you need to give your sitting area or family room on on-trend update.
- Kitchen utilities
Most of us won’t be able to run out and purchase a new stove in a green shade, but we can select new dishware, oven mitts, kitchen towels, and even utensils in the hue.
Why not rely on Mother Nature herself to help you add Greenery to your home? A potted plant not only adds the lovely shade to your home, but brings the outdoor in for even more benefits.
Paint an accent wall, a chair, or even the entire room, depending on how much you love the color and if you want to fully embrace the trend.
The color is infiltrating all home goods stores, so you will be able to find a lamp or lampshade in a Greenery hue that will brighten your home.
In the bathroom or entryway, rugs are another great way to incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year in your home.
Frames, vases, and artwork are the perfect update for your home that’s also easy to swap out when the 2018 color is announced.
Another way to refresh your home is to update your carpet for the new year.
