When I first heard what Pantone’s color of the year for 2017 was I was a little skeptical. After one of last year’s colors being Rose Quartz, Greenery seemed like a little of a let down.
But then I started thinking-I love to decorate with this color because hello! It’s greenery, it’s plants, succulents, new life. I believe greenery symbolizes so much more than just a color and I now love that it happens to be Pantone’s color of the year. In a time when so many people are down about the goings on in our world what better color that greenery? A color that symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature and one another as well as personal passions and vitality. I actually just updated our guest bedroom and one of my main pops of color was greenery without me even thinking about it. You can see that here.
During these cold, drab winter months greenery is the perfect color to bring into your home. My number one advice is don’t over think it. If you see something that makes you happy then put it in your space, it will continually bring you happiness. That may be buying some inexpensive blooms at the grocery store each week and putting them in a great vase as a centerpiece. Or getting a couple succulents (fake or real-I won’t judge!) and making an arrangement with those for your coffee table. One of my favorite things in my home is my fiddle leaf fig. If you’ve been on social media for any length of time I’m sure you’ve seen these beautiful plants floating around. Here’s where I put mine once we moved to the #hickoryhouse.
If you’re more bold than just adding a couple plants around I love a good green velvet sofa, or an overdyed green rug like the one I have in my living room. If you’re not so bold as to go with a big statement piece like a rug or sofa throw pillows should be your go to! There are so many amazing pillows at there at affordable prices. The ones I linked to are just covers from IKEA that are $4.99. I love IKEA’s pillow covers because its super easy to have many options and they take up much less room to store!
And if none of these sound like good options for you maybe you should look at some wall art that incorporate pantone’s color. Love this one from world market that’s an image of a succulent. No green thumb to speak of? This doesn’t require it! They also have several other more abstract art pieces like this one, and I really like this one.
