If you're ready to say goodbye to a stressful 2016, you're certainly not alone. The desire to make a fresh start is even reflected in Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017. Say hello to Greenery, “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.”
You can use Greenery to freshen up your home for the new year with a little help from the shops of the Dallas Design District. Here's how.
Make Last Year's Colors Feel New
If you followed our advice for incorporating last year’s Pantone colors (Rose Quartz and Serenity) into your home, you’ll be happy to know that Greenery will fit perfectly with your existing décor. A Rose Quartz rug or Serenity window coverings pair perfectly with an accent chair in this year's color. Stop by the Robert Allen Group and check out their fabrics and custom furniture options.
Bring Nature Inside
If one of your New Year's resolutions is to relax more, try bringing the healing practice of Japanese forest bathing into your own bathroom. Imagine calming your frazzled nerves by soaking in a bubble bath while surrounded by the colors of nature. Use Greenery as a refreshing pop of color in bath accessories like towels or a soap dish. But if you really want to feel like you're relaxing in an isolated forest, stop by Eleganza Studio and check out their fabulous tile collection.
Make Art a Habit
If you’ve been putting off starting an art collection, this is the year to start. Incorporate a little natural color into your décor by adorning your walls with a lush green landscape or an abstract painting dominated by Greenery. If you’re unsure of where to start, take advantage of the expertise and guidance of the staff at Tatum Art Advisory.
All or Nothing
If small pops of color aren’t enough for you, why not try covering entire walls of your home in Greenery? Consider painting an accent wall in this vibrant color, or try an antique, handpainted wall pattern by Gracie.
It’s the right time of year to shake off the past and jump into the future, and decking out your home in this year's Pantone Color of the Year will help you do just that. Cheers to 2017!
