Color Obsession

Color of the Year: Greenery

By: Shelby Adamson

Pantone has announced it’s Color of the Year for 2017, Greenery. Described as a refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

While we heartily embrace Pantone’s fresh approach to this life-affirming shade, and this hue in the spring does make us swoon, let’s not forget the vast range of colors in this family.

Vintage Vogue, Benjamin Moore.

Let’s branch out and use rich colors on cabinetry to break out of the monotony of black/white/gray paint. Rich, deep navy was the cabinetry color of choice for 2016, but in 2017 we would love to see Vintage Vogue mixed with warm woods!

Avocado, Benjamin Moore.

If you tend to lean towards warm and organic design, this beautiful olive inspired green is for you. Plus, the best way to transform a boring space is a bold color!

Lime Sorbet, Benjamin Moore.

While Pantone’s pick is vibrant and energizing, Lime Sorbet is more soothing and understated.  A room with this hue feels airy and calm.  If meditating was a color, it would be this.

Green Smoke, Farrow & Ball.

We love the mossy, nature-inspired feel of this color. It’s cool and warm at the same time, and is a great design staple as a paint color, furniture piece, or richly knit throw.

Kale Green, Sherwin Williams.

Currently obsessing over this modern English kitchen with clean, simple lines, elevated by the richness of the materials and of course, the beautiful green paint.

We would love to hear your take on the color of the new year. Share your thoughts with us!
