Behr's Take on the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year
Most paint companies offer a color that is a perfect match to Pantone's Color of the Year. If you can't find an exact match, you can still find a refreshing green paint color that may work in your own home by sampling similar colors.
Behr color expert Erika Woelfel recommends New Shoot T14-18 as a perfect Pantone match: "Over the past few months, we’ve seen the green family move towards more luscious and verdant greens, which call to mind rainforest foliage and parrot plumage. A vivacious yellow-green like Greenery or New Shoot is the perfect hue for any space that needs an instant jolt of energy or where you find yourself needing a touch of nature, inspiration, and renewal. I would suggest using it on the walls of a bathroom, as decorative accents—pillows, plant life and abstract art—in living rooms or kitchens, or on your front door to create an encouraging, welcoming environment for guests."Continue to 3 of 9 below.
