Pantone’s color of the year for 2017 simply shouts spring. The shade, Greenery (15-0343), is a beautiful yellow-green color that invokes a sense of nature and fresh blooms. If you like the color, but aren’t sure how to decorate with it, don’t worry. In this blog, we’ll share a few general ideas for decorating with color and a few specific examples using Greenery.
It’s All About Balance
Have you heard of the 60-30-10 rule? When decorating any room in your home, the color balance should be 60% your primary color, 30% your secondary color, and 10% an accent color. Most often this correlates to your walls as the primary color, the furniture as your secondary color and your art, drapes or other accent pieces as your third color. But don’t limit yourself! The great thing about using this rule for your interior color scheme is that as long as you maintain the 60-30-10 balance throughout the room, you can use your colors anywhere. Try an accent wall or a statement piece of furniture in your accent color. Another plus, this rule works whether you choose complimentary or analogous colors. The possibilities are endless!
Nature Inspired BedroomsAt The RoomPlace, our designers were inspired by the Pantone color of the year when they came up with the Malorie King Bed. Combining sophisticated styling with the tufted button headboard and bold excitement with the bright green hue, this bed will make your bedroom look like it was pulled right out of a home décor magazine.
Great For Kids, Too!
Greenery isn’t just for grown-ups. This vivid shade looks great in kids’ rooms, too. If you’re the kind of parent that prefers more traditional furniture that can grow with your child, changing up the bedding and accent pieces are an affordable way to keep things fun and fresh. Sheets in Greenery look great on the Providence bed!
