How To Incorporate Pantone’s 2017 Color Of The Year, “Greenery”, Into Your Living Space
Pantone’s 2017 color of the year is, “Greenery.” This color as described by Pantone is, “A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.” You may not see much of this color right away, but Pantone forecasts have become very influential in textile design, home goods manufacturing as well as fashion. Once designers begin working with this new color of the year and bringing products to market, you’ll be seeing more of it.
How will this new color forecast affect kitchen and bath design? The beauty of this zesty yellow-green shade is that it is nature’s neutral; it goes great with a wide variety of cabinet finishes and styles. Let’s look at a few ways you can make this new color of the year work with your unique style and taste.
SLEEK & CHIC
Our Sleek & Chic style defines a space with clean lines, crisp colors, and an attitude that’s current and fun. We’ve paired “Greenery” here with our T12 Thermofoil Stone door. The gray cabinetry color is the perfect modern complement, letting the shades of green pop. Think limes, succulents and geometric glass tiles in shades of green.
Timeless Beauty is a style that endures. The look and feel of this living space call upon traditional styling and craftsmanship. The cabinet door style shown here is our classic 450 Maple Auburn Glaze. The warm tones are reminiscent of those found in a well-loved antique and blend perfectly with this shade of green. Think framed antique botanical illustrations, bamboo trellis wallpaper and beautiful chintz fabrics with delicate vines and flowers.
Waypoint’s Colorful Allure style is about arched doorways, textured walls, and hints of the Mediterranean. Our dark and moody 612 Cherry Java door style, lends itself beautifully to that mysterious Moroccan style which is both bold and delicate at the same time. Think tropical palm fronds, intricately inlaid furniture and jewel-toned tiles.
