Decorating with Greenery

Update your home with a burst of fresh, organic color: Pantone’s color of the year, Greenery.

Written and produced by Clara Haneberg

It’s easy to energize your home with this lush, organic hue. Reminiscent of foliage and ripe spring greens, the shade instantly amplifies interiors. See what Greenery spaces and product we’re pining for: 

This Detroit guestroom designed by Corey Damen Jenkins flaunts an artful mix of Greenery prints. The wallpaper inset behind the bed features Cole & Son’s “Chiavi Segrete.” The draperies and valance were created using Kravet’s “XU Garden Veridian” fabric. (Click to see more of the home.) 

Chocolate tones team with bursts of Greenery in this Arkansas master suite by Tobi Fairley. The wing chairs and draperies sport Schumacher’s “Hothouse Flowers” fabric. The octagonal ottoman continues the color story, as do vases flanking the mantel.

The “Perlman” settee in traditional pinstripes by Taylor King affords plush seating in Greenery. 

Curve appeal is present on the “Brezza” wall mirror from Lamps Plus. Its custom paint job and beveled-glass edge ensures a beautiful reflection. 

Want to inject the fertile color overhead? Look no further than the “Happy Kiss” pendant light from ABC Carpet & Home. Try hanging a cluster at varying heights above a breakfast table or kitchen island.

Bold botanicals are always in fashion. Sanderson’s “Angel Ferns” print in olive is available as both a fabric and a wallcovering. 

Embossed glass tumblers in green hue trump typical drinking vessels. Quatrefoil detailing brings extra style to these sippers from Anthropologie. 

While we’re talking table settings—don’t skimp on placemats. Kim Seybert’s “Capiz” placemats inject the zesty hue under each plate.

Thibaut’s “Greenwood” collection features a variety of Greenery-approved fabrics and wallcoverings. Shown here: the “Daintree” wallcovering and drapery fabric, and “Serengeti” dining chair upholstery. 

Gucci’s “Elaisa” patent-leather pumps don removable crystal bows in botanical color. There’s just something oh-so-perfect about that turquoise-blue and Greenery combo. 

Animal print goes one step further on Unique Loom’s “Outdoor Zebra Rug." 

The sculptural “Moroccan” lamp table from Jonathan Charles wears Greenery well. Scoop up a pair to flank a sofa or bed. 

The urn-shaped “Brussels” lamp by Bungalow5 gives Greenery a new spin in glazed porcelain. Opt for a pair to prettify your console or side tables. 

If pattern is your play, look no further than the “Lexi” slipper chair by Jessica Charles. Its pretty trellis print captivates in Greenery hue. 

Don’t forget your bed! This “Boudoir Sham” in ivory/leaf from Matouk’s Mirasol collection was inspired by the scalloped trim on shop awnings.

This vibrant “Florence” bench by Hancock & Moore with nailhead detail would look great at the foot of a bed. 

Anthropologie’s olive “Dimpled Globe” knob makes integrating Greenery easy on a chest of drawers. 

Pillows are an easy way to bring Greenery into any space. We love that this hand-painted “Peacock” pillow by John Robshaw also evokes whimsy.
