Walls for the wind,
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks beside the fire —
Laughter to cheer you
And those you love near you, 
And all that your heart may desire!

Pantone’s Color of Year

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.
