This week we’re feeling inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017, Greenery—a zesty, yellow-green shade that will liven up space or color palette it’s paired with. This color is dying to be used in all of the springtime palettes but we love the unexpected, so we’ve put together a collection of inspiring ideas that will show that you can use this year’s color of the year in a variety of seasons and occasions!
Pantone discusses their choice: “the more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. this shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. a constant on the periphery, greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.”

This year was probably the best year for ‘Greenery’ to be chosen as color of the year as the raw, refreshing garden look was truly unleashed during this wedding season. It reminded us a lot of Kristine & Eric’s greenery-filled day. Overflowing ferns and overgrown greenery are a beautiful and natural way to utilize this year’s color in your wedding decor.
If you aren’t looking to redecorate and don’t have any big events you can introduce ‘Greenery’ into, show it off using your makeup! Think fresh green or olive-toned nails and eyes—so fresh! Your Beauty Pantry
