So now that you have your Poinsettia, Crimson and Goji Berry, we’ve got one more traditional Christmas color to play with. Let’s stuff your stocking with our favorite shades of green for 2016!
It’s a GREAT year to design with green for the holidays. From this summer’s Green Flash to the fall’s Lush Meadow, green is a major player in fashion and decor in 2016’s Pantone color reports. 2016 has also been a bounce-back year for earthy tones and hues, making green a wonderful complementary shade to the core neutrals or cool colors in your home design.
Pantone, the world’s foremost color matching system, has put names and coding to every shade of green you could possibly imagine. But which of these green shades are right for your 2016 Christmas decor and designs?
We’re basing our decisions on the “it” shades of green for this holiday season on a few core principles on Pantone trends from 2016:
- A nice jewel-tone green never hurt anyone;
- Earth-toned greens make for an inviting color option;
- When in doubt, pick a green that pairs well with a neutral.
Let’s pair up those 6 shades of red from our last article with our favorite six green hues (courtesy of the Pantone color matching system) for the 2016 Christmas design and decor season!
