Ever since Pantone announced the color of the year would be Greenery, I have been wanting to write this post. To be honest, I don't pay too close attention to all the different "colors of the year", but I did think this one was fun since I am a certified plant lady/hoarder. I think every room can benefit from some greenery :)
Instead of plants, let's chat about other ways you can add greenery into your home.
Whenever I am testing out a new trend or color, I always do it by using accessories. They are a non permanent way to experiment that don't cost a lot of money. I love green glass bottles and this lamp reminds me of that. Vintage glass items are easy enough to find in thrift stores and on eBay.

Feeling a little more daring? Paint a piece of furniture! It is just paint after all, and if you decide you don't like green in your decor, you can always paint over it. But if it looks anything like this cute table, you will probably fall madly in love!

Green sofas are everywhere this year! I *almost* bought one but it was tufted and the other pieces in my family room are tufted and I thought I might be too much. If you can find a good deal on a sofa, it is a bold way to add this trendy color to your space.

If a sofa is a bit too much, just add some pillows! I ordered a couple of green pillows as a compromise when I didn't get the sofa. Like accessories, they are a good way to add a new color without spending a ton of money.

Life is too short to have a boring kitchen! I love the vintage vibe this New Orleans kitchen has and the cabinets are fabulous.

Maybe the kitchen is too big of a space for you to commit to a bold color, but what about your bathroom?

This geometric tile is so fun! I tend to go traditional with things that are not easily switched out but this tile is pretty amazing!

When I was growing up my mom said I could redecorate my room however I wanted. I chose green and white. Now as an adult, I also have a green and white bedroom. Maybe that is why I was so drawn to this space. White and green will forever be one of my favorite combos!

I am curious,how many of you already have green accents in your home? If not, is this a color that you see yourself using more of in the future?
