Styling Greenery; The Color of the Year
Jan 04, 2017 | 0 Comments
Each year, Pantone Color Institute chooses the Color of the Year - it's new, bold and usually symbolic of the year to come. This year, Pantone chose Greenery, a bright green, much like the color of fresh new leaves in Spring.
The shade was chosen as a symbolic representation of the "reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment," said Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman. The bright color reminds us of growth, life and rejuvenation; the exact feeling we crave when it comes to nature, our surroundings, and one another. Pure vitality and purpose, Greenery is springing forward this year and even though the color is gorgeous, we know it isn't the easiest shade to incorporate into your home.
Take a minute, look around you.
Greenery compliments more than you'd think. Here are just a couple of our ideas:
Party in green, pink and gold!
Pink and green are a time-tested combination. Many shades can be mixed and matched, but this year switch up the classic combinations and add a touch of flare to your settings with pops of gold and a funky, neutral pattern to bring trendy edge to the classic combo.
Relax in the tropics...
Bright, breezy and tropical. Compliment new Greenery pieces with our Jet Setter collection and Sausalito in Ocean blue. Greenery brings out the highlights of the palms in Botanical pieces and Ocean blue balances the bright tones with a soft, relaxing feeling. Combining the natural shapes of the palms with the organic shape of Sausalito can transport you from a dinning area to an oasis. Offset the soft tones with the hard line of the Dore Dinner Plate to tie it all together and add form and function to the placesetting.
Add a touch of Feminine Flare
Adding greenery into more than just your tablesettings, we revert back to black, white and peach. With a touch of gold in the Let's Party Gold Plate and the Chez Elle Medium Vessel, Greenery is complimented by cheeky feminine pieces that add a softness to the vibrance of the hue. The best part? You can add these pieces into any room! Office, bathroom, coffee table, end table, etc. etc. etc! Throw chic to the wind with these combinations!
