Pantone, the revered international colour council, has announced “Greenery” as its colour of 2017. Describing it as a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade, it Not quite avocado but somewhere between olive and lime.
The refreshing shade is said to symbolise hope and new beginnings; evoking images of nature, foliage and spring-time, with the message being to stop, take a deep breath and reinvigorate.
Amid the hectic lifestyles we now lead, Greenery meets a desire to immerse ourselves in the physical beauty of the natural world and the sense of relaxation and freedom it brings.
So how do we bring nature’s neutral shade – and other garden-fresh tones – into the home?
