Last week Pantone announced their color of the year for 2017, and it's already drumming up a ton of conversation. For the upcoming year Pantone chose Greenery as the hot new color, which they describe as "a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature's greens revive, restore, and renew." Yes, it's as verdant as it sounds.
I'm still warming up to the color, but now I think I'm finally turning a corner. In fact, I think this life-giving hue might actually be best as a pop of color in the kitchen. Let me show you why.
1. Green Kitchen Walls from Apartment Therapy
This kitchen went bold with vibrant green walls and white countertops. I love that there are also plants everywhere in this kitchen because the walls really invite and reflect these potted beauties.
2. Green Kitchen Windows from Kitchn
Don't want to go all out with green paint? Stick to some small accents that will make a plain white kitchen pop. These windows are super inviting. (Note that this is the same kitchen as the lead image of this post.)
3. Green Chairs from SF Girl by Bay
Go beyond paint with Pantone's color of the year by bringing some unusual chairs into a rather minimal kitchen. These chairs give this kitchen so much personality without overwhelming the calming space.
4. All Green Everything from House Beautiful, May 2012
Are you totally obsessed with Pantone's Greenery color? Well, maybe you should consider going all out in your kitchen. The only items that aren't green in this kitchen are the rugs and the wood floors. That's serious dedication.
5. Green Kitchen Shelves from Elli
I like how this kitchen uses a touch of green in the shelf lining. It's especially nice with the pops of oranges, reds, and yellows.
What do you think? Would you consider adding a touch of Greenery to your own kitchen? Or will you wait it out until next year's new color?
