Pastel Green: Our Color of the Month for October!
And it’s my pick for 2017 Color of the year …
Because I love to play around with guessing this prior to Pantone’s announcement which comes in December!
So, I’m going with a pale pastel green color such as
AF-485 Crystalline from Benjamin Moore.
My Top 5 reasons why I’m choosing this pastel green color, AF-485 Crystalline from Benjamin Moore.
First of all, we are in a trend of soothing calm yet uplifting color palettes.
Colors that provide double duty; nudging us to unwind from the day + refreshing our spirit all at the same time.
And Green tops the list for soothing refreshing colors.
Then add in the ever-popular gray or taupe tones.
A pastel green is just the right color to perk-up deeper gray or taupe hues.
Furthermore, with Blue being such a strong color now and through 2017, a pale Green hue provides the perfect pairing.
Such a classic combination.
In addition, we’ve been seeing pastel green poking up in the marketplace from nail polish to ready to wear clothing to the cutest little industrial chairs at Target.
Finally, green is really neutral. When you look outside green sets the stage for any other color; from outdoor table settings, flowers or cars it’s nature’s perfect backdrop.
My Simple Real Life Truth ~
Pastel green ranks pretty high as a favorite of mine.
With such a subtle green you can pair it with just about any accent color.
I love wearing dark denim jeans with a pastel green top, it’s an effortless combination.
When I think of adding a pastel green to home decor; the options are endless.
Combine pastel green accents to your palette of Gray, Taupe, Blue or Neutrals or Paint a room in AF-485 Crystalline and you have the beginning of something great!
Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! ~ Nancy
