With trends like moody tones and dark accent walls, Havenly’s choice for the 2017 Color of The Year is a deep and rich green we’re calling “Juniper Isle.” A cousin of the ever popular emerald, this hue reaches a bit more for the dark side, but is still vibrant enough to not feel dreary.

Paired with the right colors and textures, Juniper Isle is versatile enough to last throughout the year – and throughout your home. Read on for our tips on incorporating this lush green into your space!

How To Use Havenly’s 2017 Color Of The Year

1. Use it somewhere unexpected.

Make a statement and use Juniper Isle in a place you might not normally see such a bold color, like your kitchen cabinets, a bathroom tile or even a coffee table. Use light colors and gold or brass accents to make it pop.

2. Create a striking accent wall

Forget about black or navy—Those have been done before. Green is an emotionally positive color that is relaxing and promotes rejuvenation, so try it in the bedroom to evoke calmness or in an office for a relaxed, luxe vibe.

3. Try it in a silk or velvet.

If last year’s velvet color du jour was bright blue, this year’s will be Juniper Isle. The richness and sophistication of the color itself becomes even more elevated when in a more luxurious fabric and texture. Try it in a headboard or an accent chair to act as a focus for the room.

How To Pair Havenly’s 2017 Color Of The Year

1. Burl Wood

Depending on what you do with the rest of the space, the combination of warm woods and deep green can invoke a fun 70’s vibe or create an elevated classic design. Add lighter pieces for a more modern feel, or use tans and leathers for a rustic design.

2. Gold

To amp up the 2017 Color Of The Year glam factor, add gold or brass accents. This pairing could start to feel a little like a Packer’s jersey, so choose accents that are slightly antiqued or have warmer undertones.

3. Dark hues

Red is directly across the color wheel from green, which means that the two are complimentary. Choose a deep merlot that matches Juniper Isle’s depth and tone. A rich navy blue would also pair well. Keep it approachable by adding in a little white or cream to break up the darker colors.

4. Black and White

If you ask Shelby, our Head of Design, you can never go wrong with black and white. Add Juniper Isle as an accent against a black and white background, or pair it with a black and white stripe for a lively look and feel. You can even use a smaller, geometric pattern to add a boho flair.
