Escape with Pantone’s Greenery

Designer

With the help of Homepolish designers Ariel Feldman and Angela Belt, see how to incorporate the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year into your home with furnishings, textiles, and wallcoverings.

Each year, Pantone manages to distill a particular mood or feeling into one color. For 2017, “Greenery” is telling all of us what we want to hear: head to the beach, and don’t come back.

As we depart 2016’s magical year of Rose Quartz and head into 2017 filled with thoughts of banana leaf wallpaper, algae green glassware, and over-dyed Turkish rugs in just the right shade of Kermit, we are beginning to imagine wafts of coconut body balm and sea spray in our hair. Greenery might not have the versatility of Rose Quartz, but it certainly evokes the hotel lobby in Tulum we all wish we lived in. Plus, the two colors play quite nicely together for a muted take on Lily Pulitzer’s favorite color combo. (It might not sound appealing, but trust us on this one.)

Accent furniture not enough for you? Go all in on the green. As we noted in an article on selecting the best sofa for your home, this is an investment piece. Not to mention, it makes a BIG statement. Going green will set your space apart. There are traditionalist options as well as modern forms (as seen with the Ligne Roset piece). Green too bright? Try a more subtle turquoise or navy.

Here at Homepolish we are never one to knock a white wall… but bare walls are another thing. Wallpaper (removable or regular) is a wonderful way to incorporate Greenery without going full 1970s basement. A judicious dose of an accent color or pattern in an otherwise neutral space is a great way to both add visual interest and also forget how cold it is outside. I mean, look at these selections above. They can literally turn your room into a tropical jungle, bringing the vacation right to your interiors. #Jungalow, anyone?

When you’re on vacation, all you want to do is walk around barefoot, have a drink, and unwind. With a little dose of Greenery, you can bring the feeling home. Think over-dyed rugs and delicious, silky-smooth throw blankets, layered to evoke the density of a tropical forest, minus the lethal tarantulas (thank goodness). Come home, cue up some reggae on the Sonos, and just breathe out… aaaaahhhh.

 

As the New York Times said earlier this week, Greenery is a color of hope, calling to mind early spring. As Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said, “[Greenery evokes] the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew. Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground.” Here’s hoping for a less stressful 2017, a vacation or two, and more re-laxing interiors. All hail Greenery!
