I’m not sure about this color. Thoughts?  Greenery, Pantone's color of the year for 2017. Design by Meg Braff - green velvet upholstered sofas and aqua accents.

You’ve probably heard the news by now that Pantone’s color of the year for 2017 is a cheery shade of green entitled Greenery. Reminiscent of limes, bright palm fronds and with a hint of yellow it’s undoubtedly an optimistic hue and it conjures up images of spring.

I’ll be honest – it wasn’t the color I would’ve landed on for 2017. I feel like a richer, earthier emerald green would’ve been more of the moment. But then someone reminded me the other day that there already was an emerald green a few years back that was COTY.

So, greenery is where it’s at. And it’s a somewhat classic color nonetheless, and there are so many fun ways to integrate it into your home. Hop over to StyleSpotters and see 11 unexpected ways to integrate Greenery into your home this year.

  • This image is a perfect way to integrate a trendy color. You can always choose accents for a pop of color, while keeping the rest of the palette neutral. Another easy way to incorporate the color of the moment is to paint trim. It will give the same pop of color but will cost less than a couch.
