Pantone Color of the Year (2017) Greenery!

The moment you've all been waiting for is finally here! Pantone's color of the year for 2017 is greenery- an inviting shade of a lime green. While it is a fun shade to use in your home or business it may make some not sure how to incorporate other colors with it. We will show you how to incorporate it as a paint on the wall with coordinating draperies, pillows and other decor. We will also show you how to incorporate greenery shades in your decor items with already painted walls. Shop the items by clicking the pictures below.

Our favorite colors with a shade of greenery are navy, dark to medium shades of gray, smoky gray blues, aqua, white for a bright look or black and white, shades of peacock blue, and pink for a girls room.

This airy and bright dining room with light gray walls and greenery chairs is the perfect way to add greenery to your home without too much. A patterned drape in a medium/dark gray would add a nice contrast or to keep a flow without contrast a drape in green silk dupioni by AD Couture Home would do the trick.

This bright and airy white room with eggshell walls and just the touch of green plants would look elegant with a couture silk dupioni drape or a patterened drape in green (below). 

Incorporate greenery into your gray room with drapes in green solid or pattern and patterned pillows in shades of green or to incorporate another color use navy or other shades of blue pillows.

This beach style room can be created by using Behr Premium Plus Periwinkle P530-4. 

A simple white linen drape with green Greek key trim or a linen color block drape by AD Couture Home in white and green will pull the natural green of the tree into the room. Mix and match patterned pillows in green and blues to finish off the look. 

A lime green velvet drape is perfect in this room with neutral walls, white sofa, gray pillows, and large gray deer. (Right) Lime green drapes are paired with charcoal gray and white wallpaper, charcoal lamp shades, green dining chairs, and crystal chandelier. 

In a modern room with green walls you can add navy, indigo, or shades of peacock blue in drapes, art, and throw pillows.

For a bright cottage feel just add greenery in the accents and keep paint, furniture, and drapes neutral. Add green pillows and white silk or linen drapes along with plants and green accents.


Greenery looks great with black and white patterns, such as stripe or damask. Add green accent furniture and do a bold statement with black and white stripe walls, or a more subtle move with black and white patterned throw pillows.

These tips are guaranteed to give your home a bold and eye-catching look and give you the change you've been looking for. Enjoy!

6 Teen Room Ideas! Start Fresh for the Season

New year, new you, new room. . .
Having the same old bedroom can make life pretty boring. Liven things up by changing your teenager's room with some of these helpful ideas:

1) Vintage and Modern Navy Room
Hanging rustic decor on the walls (such as the tennis rackets shown in the picture on the left), hockey sticks, oars, and other vintage gear is a great way to add a vintage effect to a room. The wooden backdrop is also a nice compliment. On the right is a more modern room. A simple white duvet and pillows work in a girl or boys room leaving the pattern to the drapes and color to the walls. Try using AD Couture Home's The Kate Trellis navy drape to add window treatment in both rooms.

2) Bold and Red Room

Using a bright bold color in a room such as red is a great eye catcher and really makes the room pop. The black and white bed, pillows, and furniture create a nice contrast against the bold color. Different types of wall decor (such as the bike shown in the picture) are perfect for making your room unique and expressing yourself. Use AD Couture Home's red and champagne striped drapes or create your own custom stripe drapes for a room like this.

3) Green Splash Room

 Having one wall that is patterned can be bold and exciting. A splash of color is always fun too, especially during the spring time. With green as the color to decorate in this year, black and white designs allow for beautiful green contrasts in drapes and bedding. In this room they added a green headboard to the bed. It is a great color to correlate with the pink in the room. To bring out this color more in the room, add some AD Couture Home's grass green drapes (top right corner) instead of the basic black and white curtains shown in the picture.

4) Black and White Room
Sometimes simple is better. This room doesn't have a lot of color in it, just black and white. The shelving in the room is a perfect decorative focus and it also provides great storage. Adding fun prints in the same black and white colors adds texture without having to add color. Use AD Couture Home's black and white drapes for a room like this.

5) Light Lavender Room

Lavender is a perfect color for spring because of its light and flowery feel. The lavender shaggy rug on the floor helps to warm the place up a bit. Add fluffy pillows and blankets to make your room more comfy and prepare for the season. Add ticking stripe drapes in lavender to match the room.

6) Bright and Sporty Room
This room is perfect for a sporty/musically inclined teenager. Its bright orange color makes the room edgy and personalized. Hanging murals and adding other sports decor create the vibe of this room. Put up AD Couture Home's firey orange drapes in horizontal orange and white stripe with grommets to go with the color of the wall and brighten up the room.

I hope you enjoyed these tips for a better and cooler room for your teen! Come back weekly to see more blogs by AD Couture Home!
