Perfectly green in every way

The global color authority has done it again; Pantone has chosen the color of the year, and this time it’s Pantone 15-0343, or a “yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring.” During this tense time focused on an anxious election and rising hate crimes, this upbeat color, known as Greenery, was chosen as a way to allow the world to go back into nature.

As Pantone put it:

“Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for amid a complex social and political landscape. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate, revitalize, and unite, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another, and a larger purpose."

For those who can’t get enough of this electrifying green color, Curbed put together a list of five rooms that Pantone would probably love, with extra special help from Estately.

Each of these D.C. area rooms are in homes that are currently on the market. For more information on each listing, simply click on the street name under each photo.

1287 Ballantrae Farm Drive
We’re not sure, but the paint used for the walls in this office space could have been Pantone 15-0343, seeing as how it looks almost identical to the swatch.
839 Towlston Road
Notice the green walls on the upper right corner of the photograph. Perfectly green in every way.
6029 Grove Drive
While a little lighter than the original, it’s still just as electrifying.
2420 Foxhall NW
Pantone’s choice of color was meant to allow the world to feel closer to nature. The green color choice seems to be suitable for this same goal.
2850 Woodland Drive NW
Out of all the green rooms on this list, this color is the most faded, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t count. Pantone-approved, indeed.
