Design with Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year

Pantone recently announced their "Color of the Year" for 2017: Greenery! Pantone's press release describes the color as "Bringing forth a refreshing take, Greenery is a tangy yellow-green that speaks to our need to explore, experiment and reinvent." We love the idea of "refreshing" and "reinventing," especially in regard to home design. Using Greenery, the color of the year, is a great way to refresh your current kitchen design or breathe new life into your home as a whole. 

We have come up with a few ways to reinvigorate your space by introducing Greenery into your space via plant life, accessories, and even small accents of paint in order to keep your home on-trend and feeling fresh.

1. Add Greenery with... greenery! This is the most obvious way to give new life to your kitchen and it will make a difference in the way you feel every time you walk into the room. Featuring live plants in your space not only improves the the aesthetic, but can also improve air quality in your home. Just remember to water your greens!

2. Green accessories. This sleek all-white kitchen below has the ability to update it's overall feeling by changing accessories; from chairs to paintings to canisters, the color makes an impact and delivers a cohesive end result. These bright green barstools make the space feel fresh without overpowering the neutral and modern design. 

3. Get adventurous with green paint. If you're serious about committing to a new feeling in your kitchen, then consider punching it up with paint! If Pantone's Greenery strikes your fancy, then explore painting your cabinets this bright hue. Too scary? Try painting your baker's rack or a piece of furniture in your kitchen for a smaller but still effective impact. 

If you're ready for a bold move but don't want to spend the time or resources on painting all of your cabinets, your kitchen island may be the middle ground you're looking for. Islands are already focal points in the modern-day kitchen, so by changing the island color only, you can drastically alter the look of the kitchen without a huge investment.
