Color of the Month: Pastel Green Interiors

With Pantone's announcement of not one, but two pastel 'colors of the year', we decided to feature the underdog. With our recent obsession of Scandinavian decor, we've been spotting a lot of Pastel Green. The calm, soothing hue creates a nice effect against gray and white, warmed by wood accents. It also serves as a compliment to one of our favorite finishing touches, botanicals! Here's how to incorporate Pastel Green into different rooms of your home, and when it's announced as next year's Pantone color of the year, remember where you heard it first!

We love the open shelf concept here. Painted a mild shade of sage green, the olive wood and other pastels give it an earthy look.

The simple cabinets in this kitchen stand out with the addition of a subtle hue- accented by a marble backsplash and small pops of dark color to add sophistication.

From the kitchen, we enter the dining room. This time a pastel green wall against older architectural elements lends a provincial feel. Keep it romantic with lace accents and botanicals in different shades of green.

If painting a wall or cabinets is too permanent for you, go for the small things. These ceramic pastel green dishes look lovely against a natural linen tablecloth.

Still in need of a less permanent option? Try including dining chairs in unique materials, a pendant lamp, or of course a simple centerpiece of vintage bottles ranging in different shades of green. Top it off with florals and stems for an organic look.

After dinner, what better place to unwind than this gorgeous setting. The raw Morroccan elements against the green wall gives us vacation vibes.

Some more transitional options for a warm room - a blanket and a pendant lamp make an instant impact in this minimalist room.

In the bedroom, how about a Celadon Green linen duvet, to compliment the whites and raw wood elements. This room has the calming effect associated with sea glass and we couldn't think of a better way to end the day.
