Greenery - We are Crazy for Pantone's Color for 2017

"Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals time to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate."
We could not agree more!  I have complied a few coastal favorite room ideas for inspiration on how to add a this fresh, lighthearted color to your space. Add a little, or a lot - there are no rules for adding this lovely shade of green.  Once again demonstrating that coastal decorating can be more than just blues and aqua and white!
For the brave - go all in with palm wall paper!  Love it, what a fabulous idea for a powder room escape to the tropics. From Coastal Living's Hampton's Showhouse - details

So cool - love the vintage tropical feel of this wallpaper.  (so sorry, not sure of the original source!)
One more cool wall paper idea from Summer Thornton Design!  Gives a modern bathroom, a touch of fun and color amid all of the white. (PS digging that brass mirror too!)
Ooooooooo... so glamorous! Pink with green mixes so well, not to mention that gorgeous shell mirror and shell encrusted table. Source

More pink and green lusciousness! Love the tropical fresh, modern feel in this room...  Source

Am totally drooling over everything in this room!  Navy blue is also a hot trend this year, highlighted with "Greenery", it is spectacular!  Check out the pillows and the custom upholstered wicker stools.. Painting the inside of a set of book cases completely changes the look of a room - so easy to experiment with.  I want that couch! Source - Anne Hepfer
Color-drenched room from one of my design crushes, Meg Braff.  Still feels very calming, and very coastal, WITHOUT a seashell or seahorse in sight. Green and blue just go together, trust me, they really really do. Source - MyDesignChic
Seriously cool. Shades of Turquoise, aqua and green has a powerful punch of freshness.  Love those framed jellyfish art pieces!  From another design crush of mine, the dynamic duo, Lance Jackson and David Ecton of Parker Kennedy Living. Source - The Glam Pad

Keep it simple, dress up your all-white beach house with fresh pops of green! Add texture and color with interesting pillows, or use what's right at your fingertips to create a centerpiece in your favorite display bowl; Granny Green Smith apples, limes, etc.  Source

See what I mean? So easy to create a whole new look with natural elements in "Greenery" - palm leaves and pears.... BTW, very pretty blog post from Casa Watkins, you might want to pop over and see her complete room make over!

Dramatic! But so easy - a beautifully crafted clear glass vase + large  palm leaves. Source
How about a bedroom re-fresh?

 Love this one from Jenny Wolf Interiors - featured at House of Turquoise
