5 degrees of adding green to your decor

A zesty, yellow-green called Greenery has been named Pantone’s color of the year. Whether or not you like this particular shade, expect to see quite a bit of green in home decor over the next year. Would you add green to your home’s color palette? Here are 5 inspiring photos showing varying degrees of adding green.

Green Walls: Let’s start with the most extreme. Quite a step away from Pantone’s Greenery, I think this is a great example of using green on walls. This shade is so fresh and pale it almost acts as a neutral.

Green Sofa: I love this green velvet sofa and really want to curl up on it with a good book, but I probably wouldn’t choose it for myself. I like to chance accent colors far too often.

Green Chairs: This green dining chair from Danish designers Overgaard and Dryman makes my heart go pitter patter. Sadly the price does the same, but not in a good way.

Green Accessories: Adding some green pillows, a throw and some candles is a step I could certainly make. It doesn’t only work in a neutral space like in the photo above. Green can act as a neutral and be paired with many different colors such as blue, pink, and yellow.

Green Plants: Last but not least, the easiest method. Adding green with greenery itself is one step I am most definitely up for taking. Keeping the plants alive is another story (or blog post) altogether.

How far would you go adding green to your home?
