Pantone 2017

The Pantone Color Institute calls itself the “global color authority” and according to them, green will be everywhere in 2017. More specifically, we will see a lot more “Greenery”–a refreshing yellow-green shade that evokes the beginning of Spring. This shade of green is the color of hopefulness, renewal, revitalization, and an overall connection to nature.


Since “Greenery” is the natural colour of fresh foliage, use leafy plants to help highlight one or two unexpected green pieces in the room, such as these green bar stools.


Pair a bright green with a darker charcoal gray for a modern look. Black and white photos and glass furniture helps reinforce the contemporary idea.


For a retro look, arrange your living space with boxy, angled furniture in retro colors, such as bright green, pale pink, and yellow.


This refreshing shade of green is an obvious pairing with natural elements such as wood. A green rug will add a pop of color against a wood floor!


If you aren’t into real foliage, evoke the look of nature with wallpaper featuring bright green leaves! This shade of green contrasts beautifully against the stark white.


Merge the indoors and out by giving your front door a refreshing new hue that is sure to make your guests feel right at home!


If you don’t want to go all out and redecorate your house, a quick, simple, low-maintenance solution to include the color of the year is by arranging succulents on tables throughout your home.


This trendy shade of green emits an unexpectedly colorful ambience that is a bold addition to any room. Try painting an accent wall with accessories that highlight the green.


Pair this bright green with aqua or teal tones for an island feel! Textiles such as curtains and rugs are an easy way to mix up a room with the changing seasons.


Try combining patterns in the same green, such as this chevron pillow and Moroccan-style rug. It will add dimension to the room without being overwhelming!


Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year “Greenery” can be considered nature’s neutral, making it versatile enough to pair with neutrals, metallics, brights, natural materials, and darker shades. Whether you simply add a plant or two throughout your room or redecorate entirely, this tone is sure to bring a feeling of revitalization and cheer to any abode.
