Lavender encourages calmness and tranquility of mind and is useful for both self-reflection and invoking a relaxed, meditative state. Combined with a neutral design of light taupe or gray; lavender is an effective tone that adds softness to a bedroom or bathroom focal wall, or as accent pieces in any room.

Pantone Color of 2017: Greenery
According to the Pantone Color Institute, Greenery is defined as a “refreshing and revitalizing shade, symbolic of new beginnings”. With a continued trend towards brighter and bolder accent colors, Greenery, reminds us of Springtime when nature begins to revive, restore, and renew. We asked Richard Gacek, owner and principal designer at Gacek Design Group, how he would use the Color of the Year in interior design projects. “As an accent color for a fireplace surround, glass front kitchen cabinets, or for welting on a sofa, for example”, said Gacek. “A classic and timeliness design should always concentrate on a neutral foundation, and be mindful of bringing the outdoor views to the inside, with distinct accents”.
