If you’re doing some home improvement without incorporating Pantone’s Color of the Year, you may want to rethink your design plans.

Not only will the color of the year keep you up with the trends, but your home’s interior will really pop.

The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year is called “Greenery”, and it encompasses some beautiful design ideas.

What is Greenery Best used for?

Let us begin by saying, we’re not suggesting you go out and buy leafy green carpet. That may not be the best look for your home. Using carpet that complements your Greenery accents is what you should aim for.

Greenery is a beautiful accent color perfect for walls, pillows, and throw covers. It’s a zesty yellow-green that introduces the sense of springtime in a home. Greenery’s fortifying attributes will encourage your visitors to relax and take a deep breath; to oxygenate and reinvigorate.

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

You’ll love dressing your walls and rooms with this trans-seasonal shade. It can be mixed and matched with other beautiful colors like Nimbus Cloud White or Calypso Coral Pink.

How to Match Greenery with Your Flooring

Depending on the flooring you choose for your project, matching the Pantone’s color of the year will vary.

If you’re considering getting new carpeting installed to match your Greenery walls and accents, you’ll want to shoot for a white or beige color. You can also try a gray or a light teal color carpet.

Some great suggestions we have are:

  • Heavenly – Ivory
  • Glory Days – Ash
  • Glory Days – Oxford

If you’re more of hard surface flooring lover, a darker brown (but not too dark) hardwood floor would make a beautiful addition.

Hardwood flooring is the most impressive and demanded floor covering on the market. Matching up hardwood with Greenery will make your home stand out more than ever.
