Decorate with Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year


PantonePantoneBannerThin

Pantone® recently unveiled its Color of the Year, what it describes as “a symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”

 

This year’s color selection? Pantone 15-0343, otherwise known as Greenery.

 

Described by Pantone as “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade,” Greenery is reminiscent of the outdoors and is supposed to inspire consumers to “take a deep breath, oxygenate, and reinvigorate.”

 

While it’s never a bad idea to decorate your home with fresh plants, here are some alternative green options that will bring life into your décor.

Pantone Color of the Year1. Modern Green/Chrome Dining Chairs – $110.99
These modern dining chairs feature a forest-themed cut-out and are a great way to bring fun and functionality to a dining area.

 

2. Interlock Greek Key Pillow Cover – $129
This 100 percent cotton pillow cover features a classic embroidered key pattern. Use it to instantly add a hint of brightness to any seat, sofa, or bed.

 

3. KitchenAid® Stand Mixer, Green Apple – $329.99
We’re green with envy for anyone who adds this stand mixer to their kitchen countertop.

 

4. NEST® Lemongrass & Ginger Liquid Soap – $22
The only thing better than this soap’s bright and sleek packaging is its crisp, herbal scent.

 

5. Stemless Wine Glasses (Set of 4) –  $37.95
Who says stemless wine glasses should only be used for wine? We love the white dotted design on these elegant and durable glasses.

 

6. Fiddle Leaf Tree – $299
Fiddle leaf fig trees are on-trend right now due to their ability to add sophistication and a contemporary feel to any décor.
