How To Use The 2017 Colour Of The Year…

The Pantone Colour of 2017, Greenery, is a natural winner to some, inspiring thoughts of the natural world and bringing the outside in. For others, it’s a tricky hue to blend into an existing scheme. We’ve got some smart ideas on how to make green your next go to shade…

1). It loves texture: combined with velvets or weaves, green can adds some instant richness without being overpowering; a real grown up touch.

2). It can take change:
greens in many shades work well together rather than fighting, so choosing it as a backdrop means you can use it to pull other items together coherently.

3). It has unexpected qualities: with a yellow base tone, green hues can enhance the glowing effect of daylight and make a room look brighter and sunnier. Try the different transparencies in our Duette®Shades range for making the most of it.

4). It makes you feel good:
 calming on the nervous system, green can turn a plain space into a relaxing one just by adding in some small accessories or at the window.

5). It can be modern or traditional; interestingly green doesn’t feel attached to a design period so you can use it anyway you want, such as in these long graphic lines.

6). It’s not for boys or girls:
if nursery design leaves you full of frustration with the proliferation of trains and ballerinas, a scheme based on nature and animals can work for all kids of different genders and will last longer than the latest fad.

7). It’s versatile:
used as a window covering or rug it can change up an otherwise neutral scheme from dry to dramatic. Try it in sheers at the window, woollen-tufty rugs or as throws for a 2017 update you won’t have to commit to long term.
