Pantone just released their predictions for next year’s colour trend, and Kale happened to top the list. It’s a very earthy and soothing shade. It might appear a little dark, which usually gives the impression that it’ll make things look old, but there are many ways to play around with this soon-to-be popular colour in a youthful home.

To put some green in your living room, it all depends on the size of it.

If the size of your living room is on the average or small side, you could opt to have ‘spots’ of Kale in the space. You can have pillows, carpets, or tables in the hall with a light background.

For those with large living rooms, you can either paint one of your walls in Kale or get a wallpaper with designs in similar tones. Due to its slightly dark hue, Kale-coloured walls can create a cozy and relaxing effect in your spacious living area.
