Have you noticed how many magazine love to feature homes decorated in white? I love the look.
I would never do it.
Husbands, pets, kids, grandkids make the color (and it is a color) white to be impractical. However, it photographs beautifully and when you want to dream…why not dream in white?
Pantone’s color of the year is green which is a beautiful color. But I find that green, like yellow, is a color best used sparingly. Don’t go crazy with the green, make it the stand-out accent color.
Every year Pantone selects one color for what they proclaim is the “color of the year.”
This year it is a shade of green that is hard to define. While I think this color ordeal is a brilliant way to market their brand, who among us is really going to adjust our interior color choices based on a shade selection that changes yearly.
In addition, the color green (similar to yellow) is probably one of the most debated colors in all of interior decorating. It is a color that is used sparingly when in the hands of most professional decorators. Green is also a color that one either loves or hates.
I’ll let Pantone have their fun but you won’t find me loading up on the green unless it is greenbacks.
