Back in December Pantone announced their color of the year for 2017.....Greenery!
Refreshing, invigorating, inspiring! Greenery is a lively color boasting feelings of renewal. From light to deep and every shade in between, I will show you how you can incorporate this fabulous color into your home.
For me, Greenery represents new life. A rebirth of vibrant and energetic color that puts an extra spring into my step every time I see it. I love pastels but I also love jewel tones and Greenery covers those spectrums. Infusions of green are seen below with a furry throw across the foot of the bed and detailed within the pillows and lampshades. There's a gorgeous tufted green velvet bench in front of the bed, and if you look closely you can see the bedskirt is even decked out with a green and white print.
Below is another way to add a splash of color to a space. This bold and elegant emerald green drapery adds just enough color to this dining room without overpowering the space or competing for attention with any other element in the room. The chandelier, fireplace and floor to ceiling drapery all complement each other while the cream colored upholstered chairs add balance.
I love this lively space below. Such a tranquil place to sit and read a book, have your morning coffee or afternoon tea with friends. This space is light and inviting with soft hues of pinks and greens and has a garden like feel to it. It's like bringing the outdoors inside.
Below is what I have done with my living room. I added green as a splash of color using pillows and other accessories and incorporated blush into my theme using pillows and a soft furry throw. Blush, which is a very soft pale pink, adds another level of soft color to my space, and the French gray walls add just a touch of soft warmth and neutrality to the space. Also, when you're not burning candles in your holders add small round topiaries on top to fill up the space.
Spring is just around the corner and now is a great time to start thinking about and implementing fresh new color palettes in your spaces. You do not have to buy all new furniture to do this (unless you want to, lol), and you do not need a lot of money to get that look you're trying to achieve. By simply exchanging out your accessories (artwork, pillows, throws, candles, etc) you can transform and rejuvenate the look and feel of any space in your home without breaking the bank!
