As you already know, 2017’s color was chosen by Pantone in early December last year. And we absolutely love Greenery because it’s both a unique shade, as well as a soothing tone, that brings us back to sunny and happy days.
Feeling already very nostalgic of the endless Summer days and longing for Spring to come, we made a little selection to remind you why you should be using this great color in your home decor!

Nothing over the top, keeping it simple and let the details work. That was the approach used in this living room decor. We personally feel like the little greenery details contrast beautifully with the pastel blue shades, giving the room a splash of life.

If you prefer to go for something more intense, use this living room design as an example of how a bold green wallpaper can go a long way when it comes to transforming this room into a statement space, where you can just give it all.

Dark, yet luminous, this lounge space perks up with the addition of that stunning green sofa. All the elements around it help build the right ambiance, as well as the aged mustard coffee table, which is just amazing.

Another way to add Pantone’s shade to your room decor is by playing with other colors and light. Here we can see how the light play behind the bookshelf creates a shade very close to this year’s color, matching the elements in front of the bookshelf.

Not quite what you’d call the perfect example of greenery, these beautiful dining chairs still carry with them the lightness and joy that Pantone’s color of the year exudes.

Another great use of this shade is by juxtapositioning it with neutrals and outside elements. In the example above we see that matching greenery with wood details as well as neutral tones such as black and white creates an inviting atmosphere.

Another gorgeous and very luxurious design that, while not being a complete reproduction of Pantone’s color of the year, it still exudes the same feelings. We can very clearly see and feel the easiness reproduced in this contemporary bedroom in downtown New York.

Lastly, and probably a very confusing one… We selected this living room decor because, although at first glance it may not feature any green shade in it, if you look closely, you can see how it fills the whole room. Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about the ultimate greenery… nature! The green of the bright grass outside steps inside and completely takes over the room’s color scheme. How magical is it…?
The boss has spoken. Pantone has selected “Radiant Orchid” as the color for the next year. As you might remember (if you don’t check these posts “The official color guide: Pantone’s 2014 Spring trend colors” “How to decorate with 2014 Pantone color trends”) the very distinct color was in the selection for next year’s Spring trends and now was confirmed as the top tone…for the entire 2014.
Pantone explains that “Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.
Designers share their favorite ways to decorate with just a little or a lot of this captivating shade this season.
This fantastic color succeeds “Emerald” as the tone of the year.
If you’re dreaming up new color palettes for spring, designers agree that Radiant Orchid is the shade to bring home. Interior designer and blogger Ashlina Kaposta of The Decorista finds the shade to be a perfect expression of the season. “I love the energy that this pop of color brings to a room — sophistication, vibrance, happiness and style,” says Kaposta. For vibrant shades of this purple hue, try Benjamin Moore’s Lilac Pink. Whether on a feature wall, or a small furniture accessory, it’s sure to enliven your space this spring.
