At the end of each year, Pantone introduces a Color of the Year for the incoming year. This new color is meant to symbolize and set the tone for the year ahead, taking cues from the current cultural atmosphere and mood. Past colors have included the seductive deep red “Marsala” for 2015, and a soothing pairing of “Rose Quartz” pink and “Serenity” blue for 2016. This year, Pantone’s Color of the Year is the lush and vibrant Greenery.
Here are fun and creative ways to bring fresh life into your space by incorporating Greenery into your interior décor:
Wall and window treatments
Bring outdoor elements inside and create a lush atmosphere indoors by selecting shades of green for feature walls and window treatments, whether it may be nature-inspired wallpaper, a fresh coat of green paint, or new drapery and curtains that feature the zesty shade. For added fun, you can add texture and incorporate this year’s Color of the Year in your kitchen through mosaic tiles and backsplashes.

Sitting down on your favorite chair and putting up your feet on a cushy ottoman while reading an engaging book or watching TV is a pastime everybody enjoys, but it’s even better when you’re doing it on fabulous furniture in this year’s hottest color!
New furniture not included in your home improvement budget this year? A few carefully curated pieces can go a long way in keeping your interiors fresh on trend without spending a fortune. Pick out some throw pillows, lamps, or even functional items like clocks and vases in Pantone’s Color of the Year to brighten up your home and make it feel brand new.
