Have you heard? The new Pantone 2017 color of the year is Greenery, a fresh color that emulates those first few days of spring. (Unfamiliar with Pantone? Check them out here!) Now that you’re in the know about the hottest color trend, how can you incorporate Greenery into your home? Better Home & Gardens has you covered:

Accent Wall

Dive right into the color trend of the year with a statement wall. Gorgeous green pulls natural light in from windows and instantly gives your bedroom that cheerful upgrade it’s been lacking. Blue bedding and furniture provides a natural color complement.

Bring The Outdoors In

Expect to see a lot more indoor plants this year with Greenery on the rise. But don’t fret if you lack a green thumb — air plants are low maintenance yet still seamlessly connect your interior escape to your backyard oasis.

All About Accents

Don’t have the budget for an extreme makeover? There’s nothing a few throw pillows can’t fix! Bring flourishes of green into your home with pillows, blankets, wall art, and more. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how fast this natural color can liven up a room.

Draping Beauty

This zesty green shade shines most when close to its natural habitat. Dress your windows with new drapes that complement the foliage outside. Pro tip: Drapes long enough to brush the floor make a cramped room appear larger.

Faded Trend

If you have a soft spot for muted colors, this faded green hue may better align with your design style. Pale green still achieves a fresh look but doesn’t overwhelm your senses. We love pairing this color with a dark brick fireplace.

Sitting Pretty

Consider Pantone’s Color of the Year if you have furniture shopping on your horizon. Greenery looks perfect in a sunroom or screened-in porch. The color invites you to sit down and make yourself at home.

Natural Art

You don’t have to water daily to achieve a home with natural beauty. Check out this seriously cool plant art. Larger-than-life leaves bring excitement to this cozy living room. We love all the natural elements that come with Greenery!

Tinted Tile

Inexpensive tile is a great way to incorporate color into your home. Change the entire look of your kitchen by outfitting the backsplash in vibrant green tile. Trust us — this will stun your guests!

Look Up

Turn your hallway makeover on its head! If you’re at a loss for inspiration, paint your hallway ceiling a burst of color that will shock guests. We love how this paint treatment draws the eye up to showcase a gorgeous chandelier.

An Apple Day

This is certainly the easiest, and tastiest, tip on our list! If you can’t get Greenery in your home fast enough, take a trip to the grocery store! Fill your kitchen with fresh green fruits, like these picture-perfect apples. Pair with lemons for a complementary centerpiece that’s almost too cute to eat.

Why Sleep Matters

While it might seem to be a mundane activity, sleep is a crucial part to living a happy and healthy lifestyle. It contributes not only to your physical health, but to your mental and emotional well-being as well. According to the National Sleep Foundation’s article, How Much Sleep Do We Really Need, adults (aka anyone 18 and over) should be getting between 7-9 hours of sleep a night. School-aged children need 8-11 hours. (Raise your hand if you don’t meet this on a regular basis. Guilty as charged over here).

What can a good night’s sleep really do? Consistently getting a good night’s sleep can lower your risk of diabetes, heart disease, and helps to keep your hormone levels stable. Sleep also can improve memory and  the learning process–when you fall asleep, your brain “practices” the skills you tackled while you were awake, according to Health.com. They also say a full night of snoozing can additionally help children pay better attention in school, curb mood swings, and decrease impulsive behavior.

Ready to snooze? Check out these tried and true tips for getting your best night’s sleep and feeling refreshed.

Stick To A Sleep Schedule

Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every night (even on your days off!) Your body will adjust to the routine and a schedule will reinforce your body’s sleep cycle, ensuring you get the best sleep possible.

No Late Night Lattes

This may go without saying, but caffeine too late in the day will wreck havoc on your bedtime routine. If you’re still dying for that afternoon cup of coffee, try switching to decaf coffee or tea six hours before bedtime. Same rule applies for soda and energy drinks, which are loaded with both caffeine and sugar and can negatively affect the quality of your sleep.

Avoid Distractions In Your Bedroom

Ideally, this means no TVs and no checking your phone in bed (again, guilty over here). Make your bed and bedroom are a relaxing, serene, sleep-only zone. Looking at screens before bedtime increases stimulation and stress. Associating your bed with activities other than sleeping (working, checking emails, watching TV) makes it harder for your body to relax when you’re ready for bed.

Invest In Your Mattress

The quality of your sleep is only as good as your mattress. Good sleep starts with good support–without this, you won’t be comfortable. A top-notch mattress helps with your spine alignment and even regulates body temperature (yes, even the fabric of your mattress matters). When you rent from Fashion Furniture, you can feel confident that you’ll best your best sleep. Choose the mattress that’s perfect for you from our three sleep system categories based on the support and comfort you need. Our team is ready to guide you and help hand-pick your perfect bed so you’ll feel rested night after night.
