I was going to share a different post with you, but I had to stop the presses due to the announcement of Pantone’s 2017 color of the year…GREENERY! I had this marked on my calendar, but somehow forgot with my busy regular schedule. So let’s just say that I am a green gal! I love green and all shades of it! I will say though, that this year’s selection is a little challenging to use indoors unless you primarily add hints of it in actual Greenery (plants, of course). To me the shade speaks to outdoor furniture and I have indeed used this color on one of my patio sets. I even have a partial roll of some Sunbrella fabric that matches this color perfectly!
Let’s bring this back inside though. I think this color selection goes great with two of my favorite fun design styles…Chinoiserie and Palm Beach Chic! Now I am getting excited because I am slowly working on transforming my den into a colorful creative haven of these two styles and this shade of green always sneaks in somewhere.
Here are some fun ways to use this color in your home decor:
Wallpaper always makes a huge impact. In these shades of green, you can’t help but smile as they could freshen and liven up any space.

This color makes an even bigger impact on a larger scale built in bookcase. I think I am ready to repaint my built in shelving in my den!

This is a slightly darker color, but you can see that the shade of greenery is specifically used in the ceramic accents in this adorable work space.

The artist behind these adorable dog bowls is a true talent! Definitely one to follow on Instagram (@danamahnke_indigohomeshop).

The kitchen really lends itself to this color option as well. The pops of green would really freshen up a white or gray kitchen.
Bells of Ireland have always been one of my favorite flowers and I think they represent the new color choice perfectly!
To die for Green and White Tulips!

After putting this together, I am officially geeking out in excitement for this new color selection! I hope you are inspired too! I can’t wait to go through my Benjamin Moore paint deck to find a good color for that shelving in my den (Ugh, see! Another new project for me!). I guess I’ll never stop my pursuit of Living Life Styled! Until next time…
