Have you heard? The new Pantone 2017 color of the year is Greenery, a fresh color that emulates those first few days of spring. (Unfamiliar with Pantone? Check them out here!) Now that you’re in the know about the hottest color trend, how can you incorporate Greenery into your home? Better Home & Gardens has you covered.
Dive right into the color trend of the year with a statement wall. Gorgeous green pulls natural light in from windows and instantly gives your bedroom that cheerful upgrade it’s been lacking. Blue bedding and furniture provides a natural color complement.
Bring The Outdoors In
Expect to see a lot more indoor plants this year with Greenery on the rise. But don’t fret if you lack a green thumb — air plants are low maintenance yet still seamlessly connect your interior escape to your backyard oasis.
All About Accents
Don’t have the budget for an extreme makeover? There’s nothing a few throw pillows can’t fix! Bring flourishes of green into your home with pillows, blankets, wall art, and more. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how fast this natural color can liven up a room.
This zesty green shade shines most when close to its natural habitat. Dress your windows with new drapes that complement the foliage outside. Pro tip: Drapes long enough to brush the floor make a cramped room appear larger.
If you have a soft spot for muted colors, this faded green hue may better align with your design style. Pale green still achieves a fresh look but doesn’t overwhelm your senses. We love pairing this color with a dark brick fireplace.
Consider Pantone’s Color of the Year if you have furniture shopping on your horizon. Greenery looks perfect in a sunroom or screened-in porch. The color invites you to sit down and make yourself at home.

An Apple Day
This is certainly the easiest, and tastiest, tip on our list! If you can’t get Greenery in your home fast enough, take a trip to the grocery store! Fill your kitchen with fresh green fruits, like these picture-perfect apples. Pair with lemons for a complementary centerpiece that’s almost too cute to eat.
