Colour Your World | #22 Pantone Greenery {Colour Of The Year 2017}

I can’t believe I’m into my third year of  Pantone posts! When this series began I didn’t really have any agenda; I just loved looking at the colours and creating boards to tie in with them. Amazing that we’re into yet another year. And to kick off this year’s colours, it seems right and proper to start with the colour of the year 2017. Pantone Greenery.

Of which, Laurie Pressman of the Pantone Institute says:

‘Bringing forth a refreshing take, Greenery is a tangy yellow-green that speaks to our need to explore, experiment and reinvent. Illustrative of flourishing foliage, the fertile attributes of Greenery signals one to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.’

It’s such a fresh colour. I think the perfect word to describe it would be ‘verdant’.

Reminds me of the Palm House at Kew.

Of tennis lawns and cheese plants. Meadows and snowdrops.

So in a bid to bring a little of the outside in, these picks for Pantone Greenery are for the sitting room.

But unlike all of my other Pantone posts all of this product has come from just one retailer — Wayfair.

I’m definitely a fan of this lovely botanically inspired shade but think you can sometimes have too much of a good thing and I daresay that overloading on Pantone Greenery could have you feeling as though you’re living in a rainforest.

That said, pairing it with an inky green wall — Studio Green from Farrow and Ball would be an amazing choice — and layering it with a colour more akin to Woodbine that we looked at last year — in the form of a mid century style sofa, then bringing in golden tones from wood and metal accessories could really make it sing.

Or if that’s not your thing, just bring a little bit of Pantone Greenery into your life in the form of a new houseplant.

  1. Green is my favourite colour – all shades. And just look at that living room. Who says ‘blue and green should never be seen’ – it’s just fab. All we need now is some outdoor greenery and we are in business! #HomeEtc

  2. I love Wayfair, they have some great pieces and you have picked out a great selection of items. I LOVE the picture of the dark wall with the shot of green, I wasn’t convinced on this years Pantone colour, but how you have shown it, I think it works.

    • Me too!! They’ve got some fab things haven’t they? And I feel the same — I was a little bit disappointed when I first saw Pantone’s colour of the year this year — but it’s really grown on me. So to speak! x
