This organization has named shades of green as color of the year in the past, but greenery brings a brightness and vibrancy unlike any green before it. According to Pantone, “Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.”
Whether you want to make greenery the focus of a room or just want to add a splash of it to freshen things up, there are a ton of ways to bring it into your home. Greenery walls will give any room a renewed vibrancy, and its gender-neutral tone makes it perfect for a nursery or children’s room. It’s also an amazing color for a front door. If those seem like too much for you, that’s fine! Greenery chairs, throw pillows, blankets, kitchen appliances, or dinnerware sets will add some pop without the same level of commitment. And don’t forget about greenery in its truest form – plants! Indoor plants are a great way to highlight the color of the year in your home. (If you don’t have a green thumb, there are plenty of faux options that look great, as well).
Even though it may not seem like it at first glance, greenery is a really versatile color, so, if you want to use it in your home, just find a way that works for you. If you’re interested in pairing greenery with other colors but feeling like you’re at a loss for how to do it, HouseBeautiful lays out different color schemes built around this fresh, vibrant color.
