In December last year, Pantone Color Institute declared Greenery as “Color of the Year” 2017. Greenery is a zesty yellow-green shade that is symbolic of nature in all its glory. Fresh, real, alive and lush! Colour manufacturers and designers make inspired choices from nature’s palette and the popular sentiment of the masses. When we crave unity with nature but can’t get to the forest, then do the next best thing; bring the forest home.
An online Survey conducted by QS Supplies with 100 Interior Designers across the globe revealed that “green” is indeed the most popular hue this season. Although there were some Interior designers expressing solidarity with Pantone’s Greenery, many prefer working with Pantone’s Kale, a slightly darker, foliage-based green or Bistro green a richer green. Designer Nisrine El Lababidi’s preference was Pantone Willow Bough which is a toned down, sophisticated version of Greenery and is simply perfect for interiors and matte finished walls. It is trans-seasonal and easily complements most other colours to create a wonderful effect.
These colours are all set to influence trends in interior decor and fashion, although country and climate will always remain key considerations to the role these shades play in our living spaces. Let’s take a look at how this fresh hue can we used inside bathrooms, cloakrooms, and ensuites.
