Let's take a breather from talking pregnancy skin care, and focus on something all new parents know something about: decorating your baby's room.
We know choosing nursery colors can be downright anxiety-producing. But take heed: The color experts at Pantone have recently announced their new color of the year for 2017, and it's a breath of fresh air.
Helloooooo Greenery! According to Pantone:
"Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world... A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront - it is an omnipresent hue around the world."
Let's take a look at Pantone 2017's color of the year, and how you can pair it with other nursery colors for a unique look that's all your own. Let's go!
1) "Transitions" Color Set
We love this color set by Pantone, which pairs "Greenery" with cool pinks and blue-grey hues. Paired with pops of pale pink and grey-blues & purples (above), a similar shade of green is used to create a serene atmosphere that's very calming for a new Mama & babe.
2) "Deep Rooted" Color Set
"Deep Rooted" is a color palette from Pantone that pairs earthy hues with the versatile "Greenery." We love the natural look of this baby nursery, which is made more interesting with bold patterns and fun textures.
3) "Fathomless" Color Set
In "Fathomless," Pantone pairs their color of the year with various shades of blue. We love how "Greenery" provides a punch of vitality when placed next to deep navy's and turquoise blues. Perfect for a boy's nursery or nautical themed baby room.
4) "Grand Canyon" Color Set
For lovers of cool neutrals, the "Grand Canyon" color set is perfect for you. This matches Pantone's "Greenery" with dessert-inspired hues to give you a sophisticated and modern baby nursery.
5) "Calm It Down" Color Set
"Calm it down" is exactly what we want to do in a baby nursery, making this color set perfect for your little one. This beautiful nursery tones down the traditional pastel colors used in baby rooms, and gives it a fresh, pretty look.
6) "Rev It Up" Color Set
If you want a nursery that's lively and energizing, this is the palette for you. Pantone's "Rev It Up" color set pairs the versatile "Greenery" shade with happy pinks, orange, blue and yellow. We love the baby nursery above, which features small splashes of color against a predominantly white room. The overall affect is stimulating, yet easy on the eye.
