When Pantone announced a yellow-green hue called Greenery as its Color of the Year pick for 2017, many decor enthusiasts responded with a resounding: " . . . huh." After 2016's gorgeous pairing of subtle Rose Quartz and calming Serenity, the vivacity and jarring brightness of Greenery took many by surprise. Despite its description as "a refreshing and revitalizing shade" and Pantone's optimistic assertion that "Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings," many have been hesitant to embrace it.

However, after perusing photos of gorgeous homes in the colorful #HappyHouseDreams Instagram tag, we're beginning to develop a "the grass is greener on this side" mentality. As it turns out, plenty of homeowners use a healthy dose of Greenery to enhance their curb appeal, and it works like a charm! Look through these delightful houses, and you might find yourself coming around to the idea of a lime-green color of the year after all.
