2017 North American Key Color

The Color Marketing Group (CMG) has named Thrive as their Key Color for North America 2017+.

Just as PANTONE picked Greenery ( 15-0343) as their Home + Interiors Color of the Year (COTY) and Kale (18-0107) as a top Spring 2017 Fashion pick, CMG follows suit with a vegetal inspired color.

The CMG posits this yellow-influenced green will establish itself as a colorful symbol for growth, strength and endurance.

Thrive  is purposely balanced between light and dark, pale and strong.

This inspiration photo from Our Vintage Home Love is a great for someone who is nervous about introducing color to their home. Here Thrive acts as a neutral more than an accent color.

If your personal style is more transitional, you can take advantage of the drywall exhaust hood trend and work with a monochromatic scheme.

If your aesthetic is minimal and sleek, I like this inspiration photo from Osar Architects. Adding open areas of color for contrast keeps a flat wall of built-ins from looking too sterile.

I’ve had this image on my Pinterest page for the longest time. It’s a great example of using a consignment shop find or re-purposing a piece you might already have.

This yellow-influenced green makes us think of endurance and longevity. Have fun using it in your home.
