Last week, Pantone Colour Institute announced their colour of the year, and it’s a shade that makes our Head of Design very happy! Yes, it’s a green. More specifically – Greenery.
Green isn’t a colour that people tend to pick for their blinds and curtains, so instead of showing off a collection of just green blinds, we’ve taken each of the Pantone colour palettes for their colour of the year, and worked them into achievable rooms that everyone will enjoy.
Now if you’re a lover of green, then these two room schemes will be right up your street! Mixing green with grey makes for a very modern look, with the golden woods bringing together the natural vibe.
With material in this palette’s name, we think this ought to be the focus for the scheme. Whether it’s a wood or brickwork, mix it with blues and green and layer up the materials.
The palette ‘Calm It Down’ plays into the philosophy of Greenery, helping to focus on the ‘pursuit of personal passions and vitality’. Keep Greenery as an accent rather than a focus, with cutesy pastel shades bringing calm into a room.
With Greenery all about vitality, the Moody Blooms palette is full life! Choose just a few of the complementary shades for a scheme that’ll really pop.
We love how the Analogous scheme feels rejuvenating yet calm at the same time. The gentility of purples and pinks work with fresh greens and the addition of pale creams makes it an achievable look.
There is never a dispute that green works with blue, so it’s no surprise that Pantone have created the Fathomless palette. Mix with a few dark greys for a balanced look.
What better way to evoke the feeling of new beginnings than with vibrant shades that really pop. Keep it simple with just a couple of colours or create a colourful home and layer them up!
“Greenery is nature’s neutral”. That’s what Pantone have to say about their colour of the year, and we reckon that natural patterns ought to be the focus of this trend too!
This palette is about bringing Greenery in through the most subtle of ways, think a few potted plants or a single offering of the colour. The scheme is warm and cosy too, with the pinks and oranges making up most of the theme.
Taking the 2016 colours of the year, and infusing it with this year’s Greenery, this Transition palette is a great starting point to help transition through the trends.
