Every year BlueStar® anxiously awaits the Pantone’s announcement of their Color of the Year. It is always a symbolic color that serves as a snapshot of what they see taking place in global culture and serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude. Over the last two years BlueStar® has seen the growth in shades of green in the kitchen from sage, olive, grey green and now, the 2017 Color of the year, Greenery. BlueStar® has custom colored matched to this stunning hue.
Pantone’s selection, Greenery, is a versatile “trans-seasonal” shade that lends itself to many color combinations. Greenery is paired with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels, and metallics. These palettes easily cross over fashion, beauty, product and graphic design applications. Because of is versatility it can be easily paired with many of our trim options.
A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate. Color blocking in the kitchen has emerged as a strong kitchen trend. At the 2016 Architectural Digest Home Show BlueStar® showed off a calming green kitchen, in RAL 6021, Pale Green, complete with complimentary green cabinetry, painted in Sherwin Williams Dill SW 6438.
Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.
BlueStar® also incorporated green in its new Matte color collection, with moss green. When using matte moss green we recommend combining it with dandy marble (has a hint of sage green in the stone), calcutta marble or white caesar stone. Use this color in a kitchen that contains natural elements such as wood or stone and that have an adequate amount of natural light.
A simple way to incorporate any color in the kitchen is colored knobs. They add a subtle pop of color to any home kitchen. This is just one way to keep the most important room in your home on trend through the changing seasons.
