Trending Color: Hunter Green

The color Hunter Green has a fairly interesting history. It is a color that was worn by hunters in the 19th century, until it was replaced by olive drab in the 20th century. While it is no longer the official color for hunters, it is still a popular fashion choice color for many people today. Since 1957, hunter green has been the official primary color of the Green Bay Packers and since 1998, it has been the official primary color of the New York Jets. So, what does it mean to decorate your home with this color?

While the color green was Pantone's color of the year in 2017, it has still been predicted to be a top color trend throughout 2018. 

Green has been missing from the market lately. It’s a color that I love and will always use and I feel it’s making a comeback.
