10 Best Ways to Inject Green Into Your Interiors
PANTONE 15-0343; colour of the year 2017
“Greenery burst forth in 2017 to provide us with reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growth desire to rejuvenate and vitalise, greenery symbolises the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” by Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, of the Pantone Colour Institute.
After a mellow Rose Quartz & Serenity pantone colour from last year it is now time to fuse all the lushness of the great outdoors in the interiors with the pantone colour of the year – Greenery. It is a fresh and reviving yellow-green shade that psychologically communicates passion, vitality and generates a sense of revivification. The colour green when combined with other colours to achieve a theme, blends splendidly with all the other colours makings its decorative applications infinite.
Looking for interior design inspiration that incorporates Greenery? Here’s what to do:
- One of the best ways to use this colour is to put it on the walls.
- To draw the attention to a specific point use green to highlight it.
- Pair the colour as see it being done by the nature, with deeper shades of green and warm neutrals for an earthy rooted look and pair it with softer neutrals for a mellow look.
- Shades of green works anywhere, just by bringing plants into the home you bring life and reconnect with nature which is important for city dwellers.
- If plants are a high maintenance then you can introduce a pop of the colour with the help of accessories with beautiful, vibrant glassware, rich green fabrics and marvellous motif wallpaper with less commitment to colour.
- For an eclectic bold look, get the accent furniture in green with neutral colour on the walls for the furniture to standout in your home.
- The rich moody green colour when used with warm-toned metallic colours can help you achieve that elegant, high-end look.
- When the green is used with navy-blue it gives a classic look to any given space.
- Black-toned green when used with pale pink provides Nordic touch.
- Green being the accent colour it works well even with the monochromatic schemes too as shown here in the Viceroy Hotel reception in LA, designed by Kelly Wrestler.
