I’ve been waiting all month for Pantone to announce their Color of the Year for 2017 and finally this morning they shared that Greenery is the tone to look for in the upcoming year. I’m so excited for this bright and hopeful shade of green to inspire the next 12 months!
As they describe it, Greenery is:
“A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.
Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.”
I’ve found a few fun ways to start incorporating Greenery into your life.

I’ve got Rachel Castle’s work all over my wish lists (and even on a wall at home), and now you can get her quirky, colorful style in the nursery with baby bedding pieces. These are worth the shipping from Australia and I hope to order again soon!
How about the Banana crib sheets? These come in flat and fitted.
The Fern sheet is an incredibly unique new design.
In the photo above the sheet is paired with the new Darling Cotton Knit Baby Throw, which is lovely enough be used as a wall hanging.
I’m also a big fan of the Multi Spot crib sheets.
Throw the Darling Mini Cotton Knit Cushion Cover in the crib and you will have achieved the funky, modern nursery to suit your cool kid.
Don’t forget, prices are in Australian dollars, so the USD amount is a bit less for now!
Zoli has just announced a super fun collaboration with tokidoki. The iconic tokidoki characters are featured on the insulated, double-walled stainless steel food containers.
The Toki POP straw bottles feature Donutella, Adios, SANDy, and Kaiju. $30
The Toki DINE food jar comes in Donutella, Maxx, Cactus Rocker, and Stellina. $30
I love these for parent tokidoki fans (of which there are many!) as well as older children and even teens, for whom the ordinary zoli designs might seem too babyish.
The lack of sleep is one of the most difficult and traumatic things about parenting a newborn but the SNOO Smart Sleeper from Happiest Baby promises to help baby sleep better for longer. In addition, even without the smart features, it’s one of the most beautiful modern bassinets you can get.
I can’t get over this video of the SNOO calming crying babies back to sleep.
If this isn’t enough to convince you to try it then you’ve never tried putting a baby to sleep before.
The SNOO features breathable mesh walls, white noise options, a variety of motions and comes with 3 safe swaddles that attach to the bed to keep baby sleeping snugly on their back.
I’m truly envious of new parents who get to try incredible AND beautiful products like the SNOO Smart Sleeper.
The SNOO Smart Sleeper can is available for pre-order and should start shipping next week (November 11, 2016). The price is up there at $1160, but then for new parents, sleep is priceless. If you’re not ordering one today, at least add it to your baby registry! If you have one, let me know about your experience with it in the comments.
