Start your 2017 by getting a new condo design. There’s no need for a major renovation. By seamlessly incorporating modern condo color schemes, you can create a new ambience in your home. Consider using Pantone’s Color of the Year in redesigning your condo space.
For 2017, the color authority introduces Greenery as its color of the year. “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose,” says Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman.
Paint your walls with calming hues
Do you need a new feel in your home? You can repaint your walls with Greenery combined with pastels. Have a fresh vibe in your living room with a combination of Greenery, Green Lily, and Luminary Green. For your bedroom, mix in the Color of the Year with Gray Lilac and Spa Blue.
Add Greenery curtains for a dramatic effect
What are the best ways to use Greenery in your condo? Incorporating the Color of the Year into your condo interior doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to repaint your rooms. Greenery is a flexible shade. It suits a white, beige or a copper-colored wall. Mount Greenery curtains to complement your existing wall motif.
Small details can impact your interior design
According to Pantone, Greenery may be paired with “neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels, metallic.” This hue can give your modern industrial interior design an organic touch. How? Organic materials are among the design trends for 2017. Add Greenery throw pillows in your living room, or some indoor plants.
Greenery and muted metal
If you’re for sophistication, you can explore oxidized metals and matte glazes. “It’s time to move to neutral-colored metals, the more-primitive steel and cold gun metal,” says interior designer and architectural consultant Chad James. Antique brass, on its own, offers a feel of warmth. Complement it with dashes of Greenery in your décor.
A monochromatic 70s retro design
Execute color theory, or color mixing, in your condo home effectively. For your living room, you can bring back the 70s through Greenery and lots of patterns. The 70s retro theme is noted as one of the design trends for this year. Do you know that you can have a monochromatic 70s-inspired room? Yes! Combine Greenery and Blazing Yellow, complemented with furniture pieces and décor in various shapes and patterns.
Wood + Greenery details
For some designers, reclaimed furniture, which are essential elements in the shabby chic or French country theme, are on their way out this year. What wood materials should you be buying? “Woods such as oak, pear-wood and birch feel more modern, as they are lighter in color and more uniform in grain,” says interior designer Aamir Khandwala. Greenery suits earth colors such as Bone Brown, Cherry Mahogany, Copper, and Bronze Mist.
The butterfly motif
Elle Décor describes butterflies as “a symbol of both grace and optimism.” This beautiful motif is also regarded as a design trend for 2017. Colorful butterflies in Prism Pink, Orange Popsicle and Pink Yarrow blend well in a Greenery background. These stunning designs are perfect for your bedroom, bathroom and even your living room.
Comfort and Greenery in your living room
A Greenery velvet sofa can be the focal point of your living room. Texture is an essential design element. For 2017, choose furniture pieces that offer a sense of comfort and encourage human connection. “We’re all looking for this sense of comfort and having a place to rest in all the chaos and information we’re constantly having come at us,” says Patti Carpenter, creative director at carpenter + company. Don’t forget to get pieces in Greenery.
Raw white blends with Greenery
White, like black, is a hue that never goes out of style. 2017 is the year of “raw” whites, which mix well with Pantone’s Color of the Year. Patti Carpenter, of carpenter + company, says that raw white exudes the “beauty of imperfection” for its natural and organic look. Paint your kitchen cabinets and drawers with chalky white or Brilliant White, then display porcelain in Greenery shades. You can also opt for dining chairs with Greenery cushions.
Greenery for any interior design theme
What are the best color schemes for your modern condo? It all depends on your choice of theme. Greenery, as versatile as it is, suits virtually any interior design theme. It works well with the pastels of French country, the metallics of modern industrial, and the simplicity of minimalism. A designer lamp or cotton bed sheets in Greenery may just be the only elements you need for a Pantone-compliant condo design.
Faux finishes for your stylish home
According to Elle Décor, faux finishes are fashionable this year. Marble may not be a practical option when there’s budget constraint, but there are alternatives. Designer Nicole Gibbons recommends engineered quartz in various patterns and colorways while homeowner Susan Pizzi suggests using plaster and silk, a technique called scagliola. You can incorporate Greenery via faux foliage.
Designing your condo can be therapeutic. Many people who’ve had a tough year would like to have a fresh environment as they begin a new year. Using Greenery is not only for aesthetic purposes. Studies show that greens have therapeutic impact. It promotes calmness as it is visually soothing. Have a Greenery home for 2017!
