April 21, 2017 When Pantone announced the 2017 Color of the Year in December, results were mixed and people were a little confused. “Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.” — Pantone.com While some people loved the bright, fresh and modern shade of green, others felt it was too vibrant a color and not reflective of the earthy greens found in nature. For those that loved the color, greenery invited an opportunity for redecoration along with the revitalization. This redecoration process often starts with a wall color and is finished with new window treatments. With such a bright color, window treatments can bring the final touch to tie your new color scheme together. Redecorate with Greenery Window Treatments To jumpstart your redecorating process, picking a feature point can be a great place to begin.
