Colour Innovation Series: The Freshness of Green

More than the colour of nature, Green connotes serenity, balance and harmony.

Colour Innovation Series

We’ve previously discussed the bright and sunny effects of yellow for our interiors. For this instalment on the Colour Innovation Series, we take a closer look at Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year - Greenery.

The Freshness of Green

2017 is seen as the year where the ultra-sleek metallic takes a step back and the hand-made and artisanal takes centre stage. Because of this, it is just but natural that Greenery takes the spotlight for this year’s Colour of the Year.

Greenery is described by Pantone’s Executive Director Leatrice Eisenman as a fresh and zesty shade of green that lets you feel immersed in the tranquillity of nature. More than the colour of nature, Green connotes serenity, balance and harmony. It promotes a refreshing calm that is likewise rejuvenating. The calming power of green is perceived to be effective that some eye professionals suggest looking at something “green” to gain relief from eye strain.

This beautiful colour of the year is best used for spaces where you want to relax and unwind -- like the living room or the rumpus room. Additionally, pairing green accents, such as a multipurpose sofa bed, to the home office or study gives the room a bright and stylish vibe that’s restful to the eyes, especially after hours of looking at the computer screen. Green works well with various colour combinations, but for a more modern on-trend vibe, pair green with wood tones and raw whites, like bone or chalk, for an earthy, artisanal feel. Mix up the calm, fresh feel of green with jewel tone accents for a chic space that’s on-point.
