Symbolizing the fresh, new beginnings of Spring, Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year encourages society to step forward into a cleaner and greener time. This yellow-green shade brings a natural, lush beauty into a modern scene, allowing people to take a minute to rejuvenate and restore themselves.

So what does this mean for 2017?

Plants!!

Embrace this exciting style by incorporating more plant life into your homes. Fill your kitchen window sills with fresh herbs, and hang succulents everywhere you can. Stick a couple of easy-to-care for houseplants in empty corners, and spice up end tables with shade plants. Bringing greenery into your home can improve your overall quality of life with pleasant smells and some good ol’ oxygen.

Are you cursed with a black thumb and the inability to care for simple plants? No worries, there are endless options of imitation greenery on the market that surprisingly do not look tacky – it can be our little secret. This color will help bring some natural beauty back into our busy lives.
