Every year Pantone release what they believe of the colour which symbolises the upcoming year. For 2017, the official colour is Greenery, a zesty green shade with yellow tones.
Pantone describe Greenery as -
“A refreshing and revitalising 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.”
How to use ‘Greenery’ in your home
Although initially this colour may not be to everyone’s taste, it’s fresh and natural hue makes it quite versatile in the home. Greenery can be easily introduced with the addition on fresh plants, subtle accessories or striking upholstery.
‘Greenery’ can also be style in many ways to give completely different looks. Styling it with white or one or two contrasting colours will give a contemporary look where as teaming it with black and dark browns will create a traditional feel.
This look uses a typically Scandinavian piece of furniture covered with a 60’s style fabric called ‘Ferndale’ . The accessories in this room have been kept quite simple in order to let the fabric take centre stage. Yellow scatter cushions give a burst colour which picks out the yellow tone within the florals in the fabric.
By using ‘Greenery’ on a velvet trellis design fabric, this look becomes plush and inviting. Gold accessories and dark textured wallpaper only add to the sumptuousness. The detail in this fabric works well with the detail of the mirror and lamps, but the velvet pattern also helps to reflect light and stop the look becoming too dark.
‘Greenery’ will probably prove to a bit like Marmite when it comes to how popular it is in interior design. However we can’t deny that this colour does add energy and life to a colour scheme.
