A cheerful grassy green has been chosen by the colour experts at the US-based Pantone Color Institute as their Color of the Year 2017. “Greenery” is symbolic of new beginnings, vitality and affinity with nature.
As the outside world reawakens with the arrival of spring, use this colour as a zesty accent in your living space – either as a wall colour or in the form of textiles and accessories. The bright green goes particularly well with white, pastels and metallics such as gold, silver and copper.
If you find the colour itself a little too garish, there’s an alternative way to stay on trend. Houseplants such as ferns, palms and cactuses are back in fashion right now, so why not bring a breath of fresh air indoors with some natural greenery?
