As some of you would already know, I’m a shameless lover of green.
It would therefore be no surprise to hear that, I’m excited that Greenery 15- 0343 TCX is the Pantone colour of the year for 2017. I love that Pantone has chosen a bright shade of unapologetic green. There is no hiding from this beautiful colour and here’s why I’ll particularly enjoy working with it this year;
That said, I understand that not everyone is a huge fan of this bright shade of green. So I thought I would show you some examples of it used well. Enjoy and do let me know if I can convince you to use the colour green at your home in some way?
Choosing accent colours at home can be a difficult decision and commitment for many to make. When I get stuck with the big decor decisions, I look to nature as my guide because it never gets it wrong and rarely disappoints. As seen above, this bright coloured green used as a feature colour is bold, striking and powerful. Would you agree?
I mentioned creating a sanctuary at home via lots of plants and greenery above. All you then need do is to switch of your phone, grab a book and hours of serenity would be found right here.
Red doors used to be a favourite of mine however I cannot ignore that this green door speaks to me in many different ways; I personally find it so welcoming and believe it would blend beautifully with any style landscape. Stay tuned…. I already have some plans for our home in Samford Valley.
Green is the most central colour of the colour – spectrum – wheel and because of this is considered a colour of balance. It is made from yellow and blue pigments therefore can blend warm and cool colours easily. Olive green being a very dark – yellow is a favourite of mine to help me mix and match my warm and cool tones.
Whilst this green shade above is not an overly bright shade of green… I threw this one in because it happens to be my favourite colour palate right now. How beautiful are these tones together??
This AirBNB was designed and inspired around the 2017 pantone colour of the year. How does all that green make you feel? I’d love to know! Using greenery in this way is a bold move for an AirBNB to make. I really like that it shows that they sincerely want people to feel welcome, relaxed and to enjoy being in their home.
