Decorate Your Child's Bedroom Using 2017 Design Trends: Color of the Year

Posted on

A subtle way to provide your child with a reminder of this year, the year you redesigned his or her bedroom, is to start with the color of the year! What?! You didn't know each year had its own color? Well, you're definitely in for a treat. Who decides what this year's color is? Now, that's a very good question. Many companies determine their own color of the year, so we'll look at a few of the most popular sources for some color inspiration, 2017-style!

Nature's Neutral

Pantone's color of the year is definitely a bold choice quite different from more neutral selections of past years — and it's proving to be as divisive a choice as we'd expect it to be. Described as an "acidic apple green," the effect of Pantone's "Greenery" can be described as "sophisticated but not too serious." Many associate green, and especially such a bright, bold shade of it, with nature and themes like rejuvenation and revitalization, arguably ideals for which the current political and social complexities have us all craving. While green might seem like an unlikely choice for a neutral, consider its place in nature: no one ever thinks of a flower as clashing against its foliage or the grass surrounding it. Whether or not you consider it a neutral, you're likely to find Greenery everywhere this year.

Trending New Neutrals

According to Country Living magazine, "Mushroom" is the ideal up-and-coming neutral, particularly well-suited for a Zen-like ambiance. The color pairs perfectly with accent colors ranging from dark gray to indigo blue, or you could bring in burnt orange for a warmer effect.

In keeping with that trend, Sherwin-Williams selected a mushroom-ish neutral color this year: "Poised Taupe." Neither warm nor cool, the color is aptly described by the paint giant's director of color marketing, Sue Wadden: "It's like gray and brown had a baby."

Daring New Trends

Like Pantone and Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore is deviating from it's safer 2016 pick, which was a shade of white. Its bold selection, "Shadow," can be described as "a rich, deep amethyst." And no one is pretending it's a neutral hue. Definitely a statement color, recommended pairings for Shadow include other jewel tones, such as emerald or ruby.

PPG Paints also decided on a shade of purple, but it's a bit more subtle than the Benjamin Moore selection: Violet Verbena provides a lighter alternative that blends well with the trendy gray we've been seeing for several years.
