So, it's that time of year again when the "powers that be" at Pantone tell us what colors we're going to be seeing in the way of clothes in our closets as well as what we will be using in our home decor for 2017. This year Pantone's color of the year is Greenery. There are some beautiful tones this year! I think the tones for 2017 are very "Mother Earth". Isn't it funny how our color mood reflects what we're feeling inside? We are re-purposing & recycling almost everything these days. If you are a baby wearer, organic cotton diaper using, eco friendly Prius driving mommy , what can I say? You're going to LOVE the colors of 2017. From the sunny side of Primrose Yellow to the watery tones of Island Paradise to the earthen tone of Kale. There really is something for everyone. Even the disposable diapering non-recyclers will find a color or two to love this year!
Now, while I've never been accused of being a fashionista, I do know a thing or two about how to decorate a home. I'm old enough that I've seen trends come back around to meet through the years. I did afterall, grow up in a house where the refrigerator, dishwasher, stove and even the house phone were avocado green. So, trust me. I've got this!
We've been seeing a lot of silver/gray tones over the past recent years. You've noticed the metallic golds thrown in with the metallic silver, no doubt. Well, this year the gray gets a little warmer. It's adding in some brown for beautiful neutral taupe color. Look no further. According to Pantone, Hazelnut is the answer to your neutral wall conundrum. It's a great warm neutral. A transitional color that plays well with others. I have always loved yellow & taupe together! I'll tell you what else is very pretty. Using this years Pantone color Pale Dogwood with Hazelnut is gorgeous and gives your baby girl's nursery a soft and sophisticated look. I've used it in several baby bedding sets over the years.
You'll find the old favorites are reappearing with Pink Yarrow & Island Paradise. Those are old favorites through the years in the world of Nursery Decor.
