2017 is Pantone’s year to be green. Whilst the “Greenery” swatch is a yellow-based, vibrant colour signifying natures green palette, it also welcomes other tones of green, from darker and more muted, to brighter. Think about introducing colours like lime for a lively addition, or for something more subdued try emerald or forest green.
For green inspiration in spring, all you need to do is look outside your window. Upholstery, soft furnishings and décor can all bring a welcome feeling of freshness and life to your interiors this spring.
Pairing your newly invigorated interiors with natural tones will produce a more minimalistic, but contemporary look. Whites or neutral coloured wall paint, and mid-coloured or walnut wood tones, pair perfectly with a green complemented or green-based palette.
