Color of 2017- Pantone - Zesty Yellow Green:)

I was inspired by Douglas Elliman's team to share my design expertise and tackle their Pantone color challenge project. Going through their web sight and learning the history behind the company(100 years old) made me to to take up the Pantone's color of the year 2017 challenge inspired by nature. The color obviously the Green. This color is one of Mother natures impeccable choices for a neutral . The arrival of Spring too has a special relationship with nature. 

Taking up the challenge and to give my expertise...I decided to come up with my own creation in styling & decor using green other than featuring green inspired photographs of others for the post. It was quiet a job for me to assemble all the green touch objects. My green story began from coffee table in our living room.  I dressed the table with a green floral table mat. For the green feast I placed green grapes and a guava fruit in a green boat shaped glass bowl. Added other green elements a green kettle, cup & saucers, a bunny, a bottle with a pretty leaf and a green chimney lamp to the setting.  I wanted the table decor to match the color of the sofa. Since our sofa has a brown finish I covered half  of the sofa with a green throw and placed three contrasting green velvet cushions which looked bright and nice for the theme. Keeping a pony tailed plant next to the sofa, gave a finishing touch to the setting. 

Green in your food: If we are going green let's go all the way to decorate our table with glorious green as well. A simple table decor near the bay window for a summer day with a green plate, green napkin, fresh green leaf  in a green glass container and a green candle with a glow in a green holder completed my green fantasy. A mix of spinach & cucumber juice with a little bit of spices and a green corn cob ear on the corn was so much interesting.

Summer time is to play with furnishings that are light and bright. Hanging a cucumber cool green  netted  fabric looked cool in the corner.
