For 2017, Pantone has chosen Greenery as the Colour of the Year. The bright, yellowish green hue reflects the way interior design is changing – our homes are becoming a sanctuary, a place to take a breath. ‘Satisfying a growing desire to rejuvenate and reinvigorate, Greenery symbolizes the re-connection that we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose’ says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute on pantone.com.
Greenery was also prominent on the catwalks with fashion houses such as Emilio Pucci, Hugo Boss, Gucci and Zak Posen all showcasing this zesty colour in different ways at 2017 Spring/Summer shows across the globe.
We also saw the prominence of Greenery at both IMM Cologne and Maison & Objet this year. La Fibule revealed a gorgeous new collection featuring shades of Greenery in velvet textures.
Porada unveiled an exquisite Canaletta walnut walk-in closet with Greenery-coloured decor accessories such as scatter cushions, blankets and vases.
The presence of all things green, especially fauna and flora, has been very present within the interior living space. I love the idea of vibrantly painted wallpaper to introduce Greenery into a design/scheme. There are so many fantastic options to choose from at the moment – Cole & Son, manufacturers of luxurious hand-printed wall papers, have just collaborated with Ardmore ceramics and created a range of wallpaper celebrating African traditions and culture specifically exploring African flora and fauna.
