How to use Greenery at home.


Pantone’s 2017’s colour of the year is “Greenery” and I have to admit, as far as colours go- this one is a no brainer.  There are literally 1000’s of ways to use greenery at home- just look at what Mother Nature did with it!  Nonetheless, we can all be stumped on how to incorporate such a bold colour indoors so here is just some of the ways we can all incorporate a little (or a lot) of greenery at home.

Invite Nature indoors


As this photo from Gardenista.com shows, the best way to incorporate greenery indoors is to make it work out outside! Any realtor will tell you curb appeal is worth $1000’s in the bank.  Do you already have beautiful garden?  Showcase it through clean windows.  Better yet, paint those boring white windows black to really highlight your assets. Don’t have a garden?  Start planning! In the midsts of a cold, dreary winter, nothing invites spring better than ordering your very own seed catalog.  Seeding is an inexpensive way to the many payoffs of home gardening.  If you’re a condo-dweller, don’t despair, indoor gardens and living walls are becoming increasingly accessible and offer a convenient way to invite Mother Nature into your urban jungle.



A few well placed accessories go a long way.  Turn a neutral palette natural by kicking it up with a dash of green, with plantsart and accessories.


Paint a feature wall, a feature piece or surround yourself in greenery.  The choice is yours and You Designs is always here to help!

Go a different direction!
