Green On Scene

It's already the second week of January and you haven't seen a blog post by two Interior Designers about the Pantone Color of the year. What gives?! Honest hour - We were scared and it's taken us this long to accept and embrace the decision set forth by the color dynasty! We were fully on board and in support of the concept behind the color selection but the color itself was... how shall we say this...abrupt!

Now that we're in a better place to discuss the color, we're really seeing the potential for 'Greenery'. It might not be a color that you'd use on it's own to cover the walls of your home, but mixed in with some darker shades of green and teal and adding in a bight color acts as a breath of fresh air. In the color palette below, Paul was able to lessen the vividness of the green by pairing it with dark tones. (We love a moody room!)

When we think about 'Greenery' it just makes sense how much we should incorporate it into our homes. We're surrounded by it in our natural world and nature is, after all, one of life's greatest gifts. There's really no need to fear the color of the year any more. It's time to embrace change not fear it! (Life motto?) Below are some great examples of 'Greenery'. All aboooaaaard!!

...Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.
