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.

one room challenge week 6: the reveal!

It's here! I know that you have a ton of reveals to get through, so I'm going to keep this post short and sweet. Make sure to check back soon for more details and all of the sources for the room.



The TV can rotate outward for when we have guests, otherwise it'll stay tucked away in the corner.




I didn't get around to fixing that big gap at the top of our closet doors, but it's on my to-do list for this weekend!

A HUGE thank you to Linda from Calling it Home for hosting these challenges and always giving me the deadline I need to finish the rooms in my house! I'm still making my way through the Wednesday reveals, and I can't wait to see what Thursday's guest participants have in store!
