Interior painting is more than just a coat of paint applied to your walls. It affects our thoughts and moods, it impacts our living space, and can even make us feel more warm or cold. Certain colors are far more applicable to certain rooms than others. Pantone is the unique palette system behind matching colors with the right rooms. The Pantone color of the year in 2017 is Greenery. This sophisticated yet neutral color offers a stylish way to say, “relax, live, and breathe.”
Green with Envy
Homeyou has written about Pantone before, and will continue to use this modern palette as a guide for both young and old homeowners alike. This year, Greenery gave us the breath of fresh life that we all so desperately desired. It’s an excellent reminder of being alive in a world of rising global temperature and species dying off. It’s a life enriching shade just slightly green-yellow that is meant to restore and renew the world around you. Perfectly ideal for outdoors or just large, airy living rooms. Greenery is a great way to get back in touch with nature while remaining in the comfort of your own home.
Greenery can be used for many purposes, such as art, fashion, and even automotive colors, but we’re here to talk about interior home painting. Like the quote above suggests, Pantone can be very cleverly used as part of a dual paint for most home interiors. It provides such a relaxed, lighthearted tone that can match any room. Consider adding a wall or a touch of Greenery in the following rooms:
- Living Room
- Dining Room
”Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love brought together under one roof.” -Nate Berkus
Last but not least, Greenery symbolizes the environment and life. The Pantone Color Institute itself stated in a world that needs hope, Greenery seeks to bring some form of peace and serenity. Laurie Pressman was directly quoted as saying "It's the green that signals vitality, energy and warmth from the sun." So start the new year off with a fresh view on life and organic living. Paint a wall or some walls with Greenery today.
