Pantone’s color of the year of 2017 is “Greenery.” The color feels clean; it reminds me of spring, healthy living, and renewal. I love the idea of using it in spaces where it can make an impact. Here are five ways to add some “greenery” – or a shade that is close – into your home.
We love making an impact with wallpaper – especially in a powder room or entryway. We love the subtle version of “greenery” in this Hygge & West wallpaper and think it is a perfect way to stay on trend. The graphic design of this paper is timeless and we think this particular look could work well with many styles of decor.
Another impactful option is to use “greenery” in your kitchen. While I wouldn’t necessarily use an entire set of the lettuce ware plates above, a salad plate or dessert plate would pop nicely against a neutral table-setting nicely.
Throw pillows are another high-impact, low-commitment way to incorporate “greenery” into your current decor. As with the tableware above, pillows would incorporate nicely into many neutral schemes. They have the added benefit of being easy to switch out next season.
Who says functional items cannot be stylish, too? This step stool, perfect for a bathroom or kitchen, adds a fun pop of color to what is usually a ho-hum item. This step stool would put a smile on my face every time I looked at it.
If you have to wake up early, you may as well have something cheerful to look at. This retro alarm clock is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and is another easy, non-committal way to bring “greenery” (or a slightly brighter version of it) into your space. At less than $10, you won’t feel too bad if you end up replacing it in a year or two.
