Is Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year Right for Your Home?

Date: February 13, 2017

This year the color experts at Pantone have declared that the world needs refreshment. Considering the social climate lately, we couldn’t agree more. They’ve named “Greenery” their color of the year for 2017. This color is bright, bold, fresh, and loud. While this color may not seem right for the faint of heart at first glance, when used sparingly and tastefully with more subdued tones and neutrals it can add just the right amount of zing to your décor.

Will this color be just the cure to freshen up your home? The online interior design pros at Vavaroom can help you decide and put together your dream room in your style and within your budget. Get started today by taking the Vavaroom style quiz!
