no, not plants!
if you’re a fan of colour, design or are a visual creative you’ll probably know by now that ‘greenery’ is pantone colour of the year for 2017.
wayfair challenged me to make a moodboard to show ways that you can bring a bit of green into your home decor. if you want to revamp your home for the new year and/or like to take note from colour trends (or you just love green) then hopefully you can find some items here you enjoy.
in general i do like various shades of green, but in the home – other than leafy or botanical wallpapers – green is a colour i prefer to display in smaller items. things like plants, accessories and cushions and chairs. saying this, i do love seeing a nice painted green room ..just not in my home. also curious what a room of entirely green items would look like. surreal!
i’ve put together a moodboard of some of my favourite green items from wayfair, and i’d happy have any of them in my home. especially that eames style chair! totally on board with the motto on that candle too. i tried to stick as close to the greenery shade as possible, which actually was quite easy. i like the idea of mixing up different kinds of greens too. for example a emerald green throw on that chair would look lovely, or a nice big rug with some greens weaved through.
when looking back, i realised the items i chose here are all quite contemporary looking, and i think this particular kind of green is a great colour for this sort of style. when it comes to vintage and antique items you’re more likely to see less vibrant greens, and more along the lines of emerald, jade, peridot and mint shades. if you’re brave enough to upcycle something old, greenery would definitely be a bold colour choice to bring it up to date! or if you’re a bit scared maybe something like painting some drawer handles in this colour would be a fun start.
what do you think of the greenery shade? is it a colour you’d have in your home?
