Color of the Year

I was sort of expecting this year's declared Pantone Color of the Year to be white. With the trend toward minimalism and MCM aesthetic, I've see my fair share of stark white walls on Pinterest this year. I even tagged a few of my own.

I wonder, though, if this greenery isn't meant to accompany our white walls by way of plants and, well, greenery. Succulents and palm trees are a given accessory to a white wall and this color captures the hue that looks just right against a stark, colorless backdrop.

It's also the very same color as the Cricket couch, so don't go overboard with embracing Pantone's suggestion.
