In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, we’re sharing homes that wear green well. In addition to the festive “St. Patrick’s Day Green”, Greenery was named Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017, so we have a feeling we may be seeing this color in more homes. Whether a backsplash, accent wall, or rug, it adds an unexpected pop of bright color.
