My Take on Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year: Greenery

Greens from yellow to blue are still trending

Perfect.

I’m on board.

This green evokes the first green of Spring. It’s about regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew. That’s the news from Pantone.

It’s the shade of green in my living room and dining room (above) and very close to the shade of the bannisters I recently had painted in a clients home (below).

I was talking about green in one of my workshops this Fall. About how all shades of greens seem to still be on trend.

Anything from yellow-greens all the way to emeralds blues. None of them feel dated yet and I’ve been specifying yellow-greens for over 15 years.

Many forecasters feel this is because of the green movement.

The only green that currently feels dated to most people is sage green. It’s pretty in this photo combined with white and a some flowers styled perfectly, but it’s not a colour I’ve specified for many years.

If I walk into a house where someone has a sage green sofa, I know they’ve had it since the 90’s when that colour was big.

There is nothing wrong with sage green if it’s in your home, it’s just not on trend at the moment.

Given that Greenery is the colour of the year, perhaps it’s timely that the decorating trend this Christmas is the natural look.
