Pantone Color of the Year: Greenery

PantoneColorGreenery, the Pantone color of the year, is fresh and vibrant and so easy to work into any home decor with plants, especially succulents  and air plants which are in stores everywhere. Incorporating the greenery color using actual greenery  is super easy even if you don’t have a green thumb because there’s so much really well done faux greenery available this year! Faux succulents available from The Southern Link

 

These faux succulents  (right) from Melrose look so real. They are easy to group on a table, mantle or windowsill (and they won’t die). I’m seeing these faux gems in various sizes, in stores everywhere. And even if you prefer live plants, you’ll find these faux succulents hard to resist because you can group them in low light areas in your house and they won’t die! No watering required!

Below are some other ways to incorporate the Pantone color of the year into home decor with some items from our vendors. A grouping of items of this color will make an eye-catching store display.

 

 

Add a cozy throw from Park Designs to living room or porch decor.

Group decorative lanterns from Melrose. Aren’t these green lanterns awesome?

It’s easy to add the Pantone color of the year to tablescapes with beautiful table linens from Split P.
