Did you know that Pantone, producer of pure colors and color charts, determines the color of the year each year? In 2017, they’ve chosen Greenery, number 15-0343 for connoisseurs, a yellow-green that reminds us of spring.
According to Pantone, Greenery is refreshing and revitalizing and symbolizes new starts. Pretty tempting to add it to your decor, no?
Here are 5 decorating tips for bringing spring inside:
1. Classic cushions
One of the easiest and most affordable ways to change your scenery is by changing your cushions, more specifically the color. Whether they are solid or patterned, it’s time to see life in green! You can even arrange them in several shades of green.
2. Chairs, always forgotten
We often tend to choose neutral colored chairs. Why not have fun adding color to our dining room? We bet you won’t want to eat in front of the TV anymore!
3. Your couch, the key piece
Few people dare to change their furniture according to trends in fear that they will go out of style over time. But why not make your couch the centrepiece of your home? Why not build your decor around the unique color of your main piece of furniture? Your couch will quickly become timeless!
4. A bold accent wall
Whether you hang a tapestry or paint your wall in an eccentric color, the impact is guaranteed! Arrange it with neutral colored decorative elements and you can even change the color every year.
5. Plants, for the less adventurous
You don’t have the budget or don’t feel like changing your furniture just because Pantone says so? Simply add a bunch of plants to your home. If you don’t have the time to manage them, don’t worry, there is a wide variety of fake plants that will impress your guests regardless.
So, are you planning on sprucing up your home this spring?
