“But there are no wrong colours, just colours done wrong” Mark Woodman
Pantone’s colour of the year ‘Greenery’ (15-0343) is taken directly from mother nature herself. If you don’t already know, Pantone declares a colour of the year each new year. The colour they pick predicts upcoming trends in the fashion and home decor world. If you start to notice a spike in green items, this is why. Listed below is a few different ways to incorporate this colour into your home.
Add ‘Greenery’, we mean that literally. It is natural to be drawn to green because this is one of mother nature’s colours and it sure is beautiful. If you look further into colour psychology, green symbolizes growth, freshness, energy and ambition. Think about when you charge something and it is ready to go, the light is usually green and it is known as a “go” colour. Having plants around such as flowers trees, or leaves can be immediately calming. If you are like us and can’t manage to keep a plant alive for more than a week, you’re in luck. Fake plants have come a long way in terms of looks and realness. Your guests won’t be able to tell the difference! Varying different shades of green will create more depth and add to the atmosphere you’ve created.
It is simple really, green is such a bright and fresh colour that small pops of it can make a huge impact! Green can compliment shades of brown, grey and of course contrasts nicely with black. It also pops against any woods that you might have and adds freshness. Simple ways of displaying this colour is through accessories such as throw pillows, rugs, paintings. You could even display some fruit and vegetables in a bowl on the counter. If you’re brave enough to go beyond accessories, nothing makes a room feel more luxurious than a velvet green sofa or armchair!
Last but not least, another way to incorporate green is by painting an accent wall. There are many shades of green to choose from, just be sure to choose a classic shade that you won’t grow tired of. We love dramatic shades like Benjamin Moore’s Hunter Green which adds drama to any room while still remaining timeless.
