Every year Pantone descends on the interior decorating and design world with a single color selected in December for the following year. As a leader in the Color Industry, Pantone follows the trends and makes a selection based on the forecast and general mood. 2017s color of the year is called Greenery a color that reflects optimism, growth and revival. One can only hope this general mood is accurate.
Greenery is a bit of a lighter and vibrant green, however the color Green in general for design can be a subtle and relaxing addition to any room. Tones such as forest green, moss green and olive green can be great neutrals that blends into any interior setting. Living with house plants adds natural green to any room, not to mention oxygen. The tropical climate of South Florida is prone to celebrate greenery, but also if you live in a wintry city a dark moss green can be a cozy comfort from the cold whiteness outside. Pantone color of the year or not, Greenery and greens in general make for a great color choice to use for years to come. Classic and timeless, highly recommended.
From The Empty Apartment Collection here are some great vintage options that can be added to any living collection: The Danish Chair upholstered in a Japanese natural motif of lotus and cranes, a Wingback Chair in olive green velvet and a classic Art Deco club chair in a moss green corduroy. To compliment in natural tones the Ingemar Tillmark Armchair in distressed leather and teak adds a great mix to the materials and pairs nicely with any vintage or contemporary match.
