Embracing The New Year With The Color Greenery

color of the year Greenery inspiration board kravet and pantone

Hi Folks! I’m all excited about, and embracing, the New Year with the color Greenery, Pantone’s 2017 Color Of The Year.  Check out the inspiration board above via Kravet and then read Pantone’s reasoning behind choosing this beautiful color,  you’re gonna be loving Greenery too.

“Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for amid a complex social and political landscape. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate, revitalize and unite, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

Pantone 2017 color of the year GreeneryYes Yes Yes!  That sums my feelings up pretty well.

I’ve never looked more forward to a new year in my life.  I will willingly embrace the three R’s of Greenery to Rejuvenate, Revitalize and Reconnect.  Bring on this color of nature and the happiness of sunshine that comes right along with it.

Green has the unique quality of working with any style preference. Tradition, Modern, Eclectic, Farmhouse, you name it.  Hey you may even be able to shop some of your favorite thrift shops for a “modern mix” of new and old.  This green depression glass, I recently saw locally, would be delightful for  entertaining with this years color.

I’m sure I will be inspired to add plenty of Greenery to my Living With Color: Green Pinterest board, so be sure to check it out.

I already added this pin that features 30 Curtains In Green For All Seasons from avso.org.

And this pin of a photo from Rikki Snyder Blog by Rikki Snyder Photography of a Dyfari Interiors design by Diane Guariglia at an AHA Showhouse.  Go See this stunning color saturated space.  Over the top! Just like you would expect at a showhouse.

Green is a color I use in my home and my design work. I’m sure you may have spied it in the background of blog post pics taken in my dining room and it is one of a trio of colors I used in our playroom.

For the dining room I chose a color that is pretty much spot-on apple green and has been a joy and pleasure to live with.

I chose green for the large open area of my playroom to replicate nature and enhance creative play, painting the ceiling with a beautifully coordinating blue representing the sky. Since I only had granddaughters at the time of the redo, the sleeping alcove got a bright jolt of hot pink and then pink accents were scattered around the room.

This is one of my favorite fabrics from Dana Gibson go here to see the blog post that included this beautiful chair.

Craving more ideas?  Here is a great round up of greenery images from Town and Country Living showing the colors diversity.  Love how it looks in this farmhouse setting.
