green 10 How to decorate with Pantone’s color of the year

Emerald green was named Pantone’s Color of the Year, but minty fresh shades and lime greens are what’s hot for spring.  It’s also being paired with other spotlight-steeling shades such as yellow, gray, blue, nectarine, and pastels! Use small doses of mint green throughout your space for a beachy vibe or coordinate it with 1-2 other pastel shades.

The best thing about greens are they can go with basically anything and maybe green is the new neutral after all. This happens because we see all different shades of greens surrounding us in nature everyday. Sometimes they’re paired with the light happy colors of spring and other times with the deep, rich shades of fall. So finding the right way to incorporate a splash of trendy Emerald into your home this year shouldn’t be a task. Here are a few tips of how you can include Emerald into your home this year!



Living Room/Bedroom:   Bringing a pop of new color into your living space or bedroom is one of the quickest ways to add a  bold statement. This can be achieved easily by adding new pillows, accessories and artwork. If you really love the bold look of Emerald, then think about adorning an accent wall or the back of a bookshelf with this fun color.

Kitchen:  Greens, much like yellow, also promote the ambiance and perception of something being fresh and clean, so having them in the kitchen only makes sense.  Great ways to bring in Pantone’s color this year is through simple accessories. Towels, cups, plates, kitchen decor and even small appliances.

Bathroom:  If you’re not quite ready to display Emerald into the more public spaces of your home but still want to try it out somewhere, a powder room or small bathroom is a great choice. You can go as bold as an entire shower curtain or rug, or as minimal as a couple of Emerald colored soaps on display beside your sink.
