It's that time of year again when Pantone and all the paint companies are picking their color of the year. While this certainly doesn't mean you need to rush to repaint or buy new furnishings, what it does mean is that it will be easier for you to find these colors in paint and fabrics. Over the next few weeks I will highlight some of these colors of 2017 and suggests ways to use them.
Pantone has chosen Greenery as their color of 2017. In the world of color therapy green is the color of nature. So logically it also symbolizes growth, harmony and hope. Since Greenery is the color we see in spring when all the new growth is occurring I think that Greenery is a good fit to bring the influence of these things into our lives.
But I can't imagine an entire room in this color. For me, personally, it would be overwhelming. I can see it as a fabulous accent color. I can also see it being used to brighten a small area that doesn't receive a lot of natural light. Use Greenery in your accents such as throw pillows or pick up the color in your window coverings. You can also use your wall art to bring touches of this color into your home.
I actually love this color as green and it's many shades and hues are among my favorite colors. And while you won't find a large number of green flowers I am happy to say that I have two gorgeous photographs that will bring this color into your home. One is featured here today and I will share the other with you in my next post.
