Greenery is Pantone’s color of the year for 2017

– find ways to use it in your home!

Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color, named greenery as 2017’s color of the year.

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.

    My daughter is in love with the color green and I wanted to find the right shade for her. Someone had shared this post on Pinterest (my wife spotted it) and I had to tell you that after we got the color and painted her room, we wanted to use it in our basement too! It feels so energetic and relaxing at the same time. My daughter is very happy with the end result. I told my wife I had to comment on this because we are just so blown away by your recommendation. We did it last weekend. Love this color!

      Is this like a specialty color? I am having trouble finding it. My wife spotted it on Pinterest and fell in love. She wants out bedroom and master bath to be done in this color to help her relax more. I guess green is a relaxing color? I am not sure. I don’t care what color she picks, I just want her to be happy. I just wish it wasn’t so hard to find Pantone tinted/colored paint.
