Pantone's Color of the Year - Greenery: Ways to Add to Your Home

Are you curious what the Pantone color of the year is all about? Every year, in December, Pantone releases a color that they choose as the color of the year. From their site Pantone says:

What is the PANTONE Color of the Year?
"A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude."

I am usually on board for their color choices and this year's color is no exception. I don't decorate much with green, outside of my faux and real plants, but I have seen beautifully decorated places that is fully infused with this color. You can add this color to your house in a large or small scale way. 
My favorite large scale use of this color is palm leaves wallpaper. This wallpaper called Wildly White from FlavorPaper is certain to turn some heads and is a great way to add some jazz to your space

In addition to wallpaper you can add large furniture or rugs.
On a small scale you can add these colors through accents pieces such as throws, pillows, vases or small accent furniture. 
Also, actual plants, real or faux, are a great idea for incorporating this color.
I am not totally surprised about this color choice. The social stance over the last few years has been about going green and rejuvenating our environment. Green always gives this feelings so this color choice is right in line with social trends.
