Pantone's Color of the Year is here, and it's "Greenery", a light, yellowy green that will remind you of happy spring days.
As to why they chose this particular shade, Pantone writes that Greenery is
"A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude."
Lindsey M. Roberts of The Washington Post writes:
"When used on an accent wall, kitchen backsplash or throw, it will refresh and energize you. Pair it with warm whites and neutrals for a clean, tranquil vibe, or use a bright white for a fun, contemporary feel. It’s especially nice in kitchens, where it’s natural to want a fresh feeling, but also in entries and hallways, to transition between room colors."
If you're ready to bring this kind of zesty and renewing color into your homes but might not want to commit to painting a wall, we've got a few ideas. You can start at Pantone.com, where they have 10 different palettes to help inspire your decor.
