8 home décor items to bring spring indoors
The Pantone Color Institute annually introduces one color of the year. 2017 brought us Greenery, a zesty yellow-green shade. The emphasis of this color is to revive, restore and renew. Incorporating Greenery into your home with accessories, furniture or textiles can not only add a pop of color but invigorate. Retailers are showing greenery amongst several product groups., and I am seeing the trend in fabrics for spring.
