Pantone have come out with their prediction that the colour green, specifically Greenery, will be the big colour of 2017. They say:
“A refreshing and revitalizing 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.”
Well, I think we can all get on board with that!
You’ll start to see this colour pop up all over the place now, from fashion, makeup and beauty, food and drink and of course, interiors. And if you know me, then you’ll know it is the latter that really interests me. Green isn’t the first colour I would think of decorating with despite the name of this blog, but it can be done ever so beautifully. Here’s some inspiration, from painting whole rooms green to adding a more subtle touch with some accessories.

If you want to decorate with the colour, how about Little Greene’s Aquamarine which is a subtle shade with plenty of warm tones. I also love Pearl – Dark which is on the grey side of green and would fit beautifully into a scandi-inspired house.
And talking about leaf print, how about this gorgeous palm leaf print lampshade? Yum!
Don’t forget adding actual greenery in the form of plants will also tick the Greenery box! I am a fan of faux plants as I have an incredible tendency to kill every plant I come across (including a cactus?!). This potted olive tree is stunning , whereas this aloe is now in the sale and this palm leaf is an absolute bargain.
And if you really can’t bare to add any green to your interiors, how about this beautifully scented Jo Malone candle just to get in to the spirit of things!
