Today’s the one day in the year when a color gets to make headlines around the world. Indeed, the “global authority on color” Pantone has announced its Color of the Year for 2017: a refreshing yellow-green shade called “greenery” that’s evocative of spring and new beginnings. And we say, it’s about time.
Here on Curbed, we’ve seen delightful greens transpire all over, from natural green walls and roofs to the interior design of many homes featured in our weekly House Calls series, snapshots of which are now highlighted below for inspiration.
There are lots of ideas here, none of which involve dressing your home up like Kermit. It’s all about incorporating dabs of green here and there, some darker, some lighter, some mixed with other greens, some presented with sharp contrasts. But the easiest way to do “greenery”? With real greenery, of course. Houseplants not only bring life into the house visually, but they also purify air. Here’s a guide to getting started.
