Greenery: The ‘IT’ Colour Of 2017

Every year the authority on all things colour-related, Pantone, announces a symbolic colour that it thinks sums up the mood and atmosphere of the times. And this year, Pantone has gone on record to crown “Greenery” as the definitive colour to have in houses and homes for 2017.

The colour of zesty limes, fresh spring shoots, and Mediterranean olives, according to Pantone’s official website; Greenery is also “emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality”. That according to Leatrice Eisman, Pantone Colour Institute’s Executive Director, “symbolizes the connection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose”.

So, with Greenery being such a positive and inspirational colour we think it’s the perfect update to introduce into your home for 2017. With home offices and study spaces in particular set to benefit from a burst of the good green stuff. If you’re ready to embrace green in your interiors, our Linen Cotton Pistachio or Kingfisher, House Linen Laurel and Washed Cotton Kiwi fabrics are some of the best ones to go for. And the good news is, we can upholster any of our handcrafted British sofas, sofa beds, bedsteads, armchairs, ottomans and more, in these custom colours.

Or, if you prefer to use Greenery as an accent colour in your interiors, our neutral fabrics are the prefect complementary choice.

Here’s some inspiration on ways to use Greenery in the home…
