I have always been really interested in Pantone's predictions for 'Color of the Year'.
2013- Emerald. LOVED!!!! I still do.
In 2014 came the year of Radiant Orchid. (Or pukey purple). I was holding off on decorating Amelia' nursery, because I wanted to find out what 2014's color will be, and had 'committed' to use it. Imagine my disdain when they made the announcement. Either way, I made it work with some yellow, grey and Radiant Orchid. 2015- Marsala aka Redskins Red. Lets just say I was glad Amelia was not born in 2015. I thought it was great for fashion, but tough to pull off with home decor. Enough has been said about 2016's Rose Quartz and Serenity (aka baby shower blue, and baby shower pink), so we will leave it at that.
I was really gunning for a Hunter Green for 2017, but then came Greenery. I like it. I don't love it, but I like it. Maybe my expectations were lot after rosy and bluey in 2016. Maybe it just leaves a lot of room for creativity!
