Incorporating Pantone’s ‘Greenery’ in Your Home Design
In case you haven’t already heard, Pantone’s colour of 2017 is Greenery! If you want to get an up-to-date interior décor in your home, the time has come to start incorporating this year’s colour in your designs.
Here are some of the easiest ways you can include Greenery in your home interior.
A feature wall
A feature wall is a great way to integrate a new colour scheme into a room without it taking over and becoming overbearing.
For a stand out colour like Greenery it’s the perfect way to draw the eye and accessorize with similar tones, without having to go the whole hog.
Plus it means you don’t have to dismantle all the furniture and move it to another room – just cover it with a duster sheet and you’re sorted.
‘Alliance’ from Crown Paints makes the perfect feature wall colour, 2 Litre £49.50.
Botanical prints are a big trend for 2017, no doubt because of Pantone’s chosen colour of the year.
Bringing a bold print into your home can sound like a scary prospect, especially with a busy print such as a botanical one.
One way to face your fear is to forget about using it in the main part of a room. You can get used to and see how you feel about a print by instead using it in the nooks and crannies you wouldn’t expect.
For example, why not try upcycling a dated bookcase with some white paint and a botanical wallpaper on the back? Or you can recreate a jungle in your wardrobe with a print straight out of the Amazon.
Why not try ‘Botany Monestera’ from Photowall, £29.
The little things
If you’re not ready to bring a green sofa into your home just yet, start out with some little changes to see how it suits your style.
Whether it’s a scented candle, a cushion here and there or just a rejuvenation of your dinnerware – it’s the small details that bring a room together to create a sleek and finished look.
We love this Botanical Fern Cushion from Sass and Belle, £13.00.
