How to incorporate 2017 color trends into your decor

You already know Greenery is 2017 Pantone’s Color of the Year, but you can’t decorate a house with Greenery alone. Thankfully, the world has no shortage of colors, but which colors to choose?

For 2017, Behr has simplified the decision for you by grouping coordinating trending colors into three beautiful palettes. Here's a rundown of what's in store.


The Comfortable palette is perfect for anyone who’s shied away from using a lot of color in their decor. The muted pastels and neutral hues offer a versatile mix that includes a barely there gray, a subtle rose and a powdery blue, among others. If you’re unsure where to incorporate these all-purpose shades, start with the kitchen or bathroom. Check out the showroom at bulthaup Dallas for a little inspiration.


If earthy hues and jewel tones are more your style, Composed should be your go-to color group. A deep, mineral gray provides a modern background to show off furniture and accessories in deep berry and understated greens and blues. See how to pull a room together at the Adriana Hoyos showroom.


Get ready to go all in and create a dramatic and adventurous look using the Confident color array. Choose from a hot and spicy red, energetic orange and sunshiny yellow, paired with a background in dusky blues or lime. You might find your muse after a stroll through the Duralee showroom.

Mix and Match

Do you hate being pigeonholed? Are you beyond confident with color? Trends are meant to be personalized, so feel free to let your color spirit soar and try mixing and matching among the three palettes. A Comfortable powdery blue wall with Confident sunshiny yellow accessories and Composed beigey gray furniture might be just what you need for your new great room. It’s your home, so make sure it represents you, regardless of trends. Go color wild with a walk through the showroom at F. Schumacher & Co.

There’s a lot to be said for black and white, but what’s the world without color? If you’re ready to make 2017 the best year yet, start by freshening up your home and try adding some exciting new shades. A quick stroll through the showrooms at the Dallas Design District could be exactly where inspiration will strike!
