I think Pantone made the right choice in choosing a shade of green as their color of the year for 2017. What better way to brighten a space and bring a bit of nature inside than with the color green? Especially in the middle of winter I think incorporating some green into your décor is a must: there may not be green leaves outside, but you can make up for that with the way you decorate! These small touches will bring some life to your home – and remind you that spring will be here before long (no matter how long winter may seem).
- Hanging Plants
You can never have too many plants. Hanging plants are such a wonderful addition to any room – the kitchen, living room, bedroom, or even the hallway or entryway.
- Kitchen Décor
If your kitchen is in need of a pop of color, try a green tea kettle. A colored tea kettle is an easy, inexpensive way to add some color to your décor. Or, you could brighten your table with some green bowls. The bowls shown above are from Anthropologie – perfect for serving soup on cold winter nights.
- Throw Pillows
Pillows are the simplest way to revive a dull, boring space. You will be surprised at the difference such a small touch can make in your bedroom or living room.
- Tropical Leaves
Tropical leaves are everywhere right now – and with good reason. If you have some empty wall space, try a print, tapestry, or, if you are a bit more ambitious, wallpaper.
If you are a little more daring, try a green chair. I love the modern design of the chair shown above from Amara.
Green vases can hold branches in the winter, and then flowers once spring arrives. Vases allow you to get creative: you can fill them with something new whenever you are in need of a change!
Towels are an easy way to change your décor. You do not have to spend a lot to purchase a new set of hand towels or kitchen towels, and you can use them to instantly introduce a new color to any space. The hand towels shown above are from Target.
- Wire Baskets
Wire baskets are perfect for books, magazines, papers … or clutter that would otherwise end up on the floor! And you can find wire baskets in almost any color at a variety of stores. If your new year’s resolution is to get organized and eliminate clutter, a few more baskets can only help you achieve your goal.
So, what do you think of Pantone’s color of the year for 2017? And do you like to incorporate green into your décor, or do you prefer different colors? I would love to hear your thoughts!
