Green is a powerful colour to empower, uplift and enliven, making it a great colour choice for decorating our homes. Green can be aesthetically beautiful, it is also good for us, and there are many greens to choose from.
Leading global colour authority Pantone have chosen Greenery as the Colour of the Year 2017. “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.” Pantone’s Greenery was chosen to represent notions of minimalism, connecting with nature and our environment, and it embraces the concept ‘Buy less, choose well, make it last’… a concept that we are in full agreement with here at Claire Gaudion.
But there are many greens… an infinite variety of shades surround us in nature to inspire our home decor, from the most delicate sage greens to the deepest forest evergreens, and we will each connect with some shades more than others. Choose greens that work for you, in a way that works for you… a wall painted green, or foliage artwork or wallpaper can create a really refreshing space, accessorised with textile accessories in a variety of green prints and patterns. Greens mix well with many other colours too, from pinks to contemporary neutrals so you can instantly refresh your room by adding a few green accents with accessories, or house plants. Bringing nature itself indoors adds wonderful fresh colour and texture. Plants have extra benefits too as they can neutralise toxins in the home, adding to their incredible wellbeing affects.
