pantone color of the year: greenery

I'm not usually a fan of Pantone's pick for Color of the Year, but this year I'm totally on board! I've really been drawn to the 70's vintage feel of yellowy greens, especially when used in leather or velvet, so I was excited to see Greenery as Pantone's pick for 2017 Color of the Year. 

A few of my favorite yellow-green pieces:

I'm not sure that I would be bold enough to put this color in my kitchen, but these two designs show that it can definitely work.

You just can't go wrong with a velvet and lucite combination. Ever.
