Get Inspired by Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year

January 27, 2017


One of the key design decisions you’ll make when purchasing one of the new homes in Columbus GA is choosing paint colors. Every year, the Pantone Color Institute chooses a new color that they predict will drive interior design and fashion trends. This year’s selection is Greenery – a light, fresh shade to invigorate your space.

This year’s color also has a social element behind it. Pantone executives said they chose Greenery to provide reassurance amid the tumultuous social and political environment that characterized 2016. Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman said, “Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”

Since experts believe Pantone’s color and green in general will be part of a larger design trend this year, here are a few ways you can use it in your new home.

Walls – Painting a feature wall in your new home with Greenery is one way to make the room standout. Another option is to create a unique wall treatment featuring large squares of different shades of green. This type of design would bring depth to the space.

Front Door – The color green makes any front door pop, especially if the rest of your home is painted a neutral color. Plus, green doors are associated with health, safety, tranquility, and harmony, as well as money and wealth – all great things!

Accessories – Look for items like green throw pillows and green table lamps to add the freshness of nature to your new home.

Dining Room – Create a chic dining room by adding draperies and chairs in Greenery, paired with an overall black and white theme.

Kitchen – Designers say one of the best places to use a bright green is in the kitchen. Add plants and herbs, or consider a green backsplash, accent wall or an indoor-outdoor rug.

Dinnerware – Another option for adding Greenery to your home is with the addition of a green dinnerware set. It’s a great way to bring the timeless hue to your kitchen table.
