Colour trends for 2017 breathe vibrancy and optimism with Pantone’s selection of Greenery as their Colour of the Year. This year’s hue offers a variety of options for bringing the trend into your personal style.

Tropical prints are popping up on fabrics for home and fashion to create a lively, feel-good approach to style. Colour trends ease on to the scene in an effort to blend in with the lifestyle environment to complement moods and desires. The current atmosphere asks for some uplifting, and green is just the colour to do this. Suddenly the world becomes open to the optimism this shade offers when we look outside to find nature’s greenery to bring a hopeful approach to being on trend.

Adding pops of green to neutral décor is the ideal way to bring the trend home. Warm greys and creamy whites work well with greenery, and the beauty of this shade is that it’s always in style. Hints of green belong in every home. From plants to accessories, the natural tone breathes life into any space. There is the right shade of green for every décor and colour scheme.

Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2017 is a great contrast to last year’s selection. The style world struggled to see the lasting quality of adding the pastel shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity when Pantone selected a rare combination of two colours for 2016.

Not only does the colour green bring an air of positivity into the environment, but houseplants also help to naturally purify the air and remove toxins in the home. For a more luxurious approach to going green, you can wear an emerald stone to preserve love and to stimulate creative energy. The continued trend towards eating greens also indicates the power this colour has in every aspect of lifestyle.

Greenery is a strong choice and plays up the need for finding a sense of confidence within the style world when there is a global environment of uncertainty. No need to wait for spring’s arrival ‚ÄĎ head to the local florist and start to create your own green oasis to bring a sense of optimism into your décor.
