The Scenery is better with Greenery
When the Pantone Color Institute named “Greenery” the color of the year for 2017, we could all get on board.
Who doesn’t love a shot of chlorophyll? As Pantone notes, it’s “a refreshing and revitalizing shade, symbolic of new beginnings.”
This vintage cabinet offered by 1st Dibs would make a stunning mark in an entryway and it’s green glass mosaic front is elegance that works in contemporary or traditional settings.
When you’re ready to switch out your heavy quilts and woolen throws and remake your bed for spring, what could be fresher than these Serena & Lily border frame sheets in delicious 300-thread count cotton percale. Add a vase of lily-of-the-valley on your bedside table and the look is complete.
Punch up your pool or patio area with some greenery in the form of these swank lounge chairs from designer Celerie Kemble and available at Horchow. They have a definite retro Beverly Hills Hotel vibe but their faux rattan is actually sturdy aluminum.
What about the real deal? Actual greenery is always welcome in any home. You could deploy the hottest houseplant currently going--but first you’d have to find it. All the rage in Europe and Great Britain, the Chinese Money Plant (pilea peperomioides) is loved for its flat discs of green that loll on graceful stems like an Alexander Calder mobile. Sadly, it’s still very hard to come by in the U.S. Ebay and Etsy may be your best bet.
