Pantone Colour of the Year 2017
Pantone has just named the fresh and zesty yellow-green shade ‘Greenery’ as its colour of the year for 2017. The colour is described as the shade of ‘new beginnings’ and a shade that ‘evokes the first days of spring, when nature revives, restore and renews.’ The hue has certainly been one of the major themes in both fashion and interiors in SS17 shows and forecasting. Greenery is natures neutral colour, a colour we perhaps all take for granted as it is an ‘every-day’ colour in the natural world. Pantone’s Greenery Shade is ‘trans-seasonal’ and lends itself to many colour combinations, making it easy to style around the home.
This greenery shade will add a bright pop of colour to any home, however whilst we agree with the concept behind pantone’s choice of colour of the year, it may be slightly daunting to have such a vibrant hue as a permanent fixture in the home. We much prefer pantone’s colour predictions for spring – Kale, a more blue based green which you may find much easier to work with. This colour is bold and quirky and brings a touch the outdoors inside.
Lorna has recently been revamping her house and has been using pantone’s colour prediction for spring – Kale, as one of the key colours. Here are some images of the colour alongside some styling, enabling you to see how you could work this colour in your own home.
Lorna has used the kale colour on her spare room walls and has paired this with a tropical wallpaper statement wall which really picks up on the colour, making the room look stylish and sophisticated. The kale colour Paired with an upholstered headboard and cushions in our Buds & Butterfly fabric are the perfect combination, as the green and dark moody hue of the Buds & Butterfly really sit well together and compliment each other.
If your’e looking to bring a touch of the outdoors into your home without redecorating, our fabric plant pots are both beautiful and functional and offer the perfect solution. Pot any variation of herbs and flowers in our pots and you can bring the zingy and fresh shades of the outdoors inside.
