GREEN is GOOD
2017 Pantone color of the year
We love the color green because it is richly symbolic. First, green is the color of prosperity. I remember a well-heeled woman from Laguna Nigel CA. She came in and bought everything we had that was green. She informed me in no uncertain terms that green is the “Color of money honey, so you can’t go wrong with green in your home.” I also like green for another reason. Often times hospitals and doctors’ offices are painted in a soft green – why? It is known to have healing properties. Archangel Raphael is also associated with the color green. Color has a profound effect on our physical, emotional and mental well-being. In addition to healing and abundance, the color green activates balance, harmony, and hope.
Pantone announced the 2017 color of the year. It’s a beautiful shade of green called appropriately enough, GREENERY. Bloggers are commenting on the fresh, spring like feeling with this shade of green. If you’re interested in this revitalizing bright shade, visit www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2017. They have suggestions as to what colors would also work with this vibrant green.
Yellow green vs Blue green
You may have already found the perfect color. Check out your Pinterest boards and play detective. Do you tend to choose the yellow-greens or the blue-toned greens? Look at your accessories.... you may have the perfect green color hiding in your favorite scarf. Look for clues in a favorite picture hanging. Play detective. Subconsciously you already know what colors are right for you.
Whatever green you choose, integrate green into your decor. Remember, in the Lord's Prayer David said, "He maketh me to lie down in GREEN pastures." Notice he didn't say grey or greige pastures. Green is good.
