The announcement of Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2017 made the Homemaker office all giddy with excitement at the thought of a green-filled year. There’s no better time to look at the outdoors for inspiration and reconnect with nature.
“Open spaces in interior and exterior design and floor-to-ceiling windows allow the green outdoors to become part of a room’s backdrop and ambience. Adding Greenery through living walls, terrariums, botanically-themed wallpaper, paint, accent furniture and decor provides respite and breathing space. A Greenery-painted wall or piece of furniture delivers a pop of colour, with the added benefit of creating the illusion of nature indoors. Bringing the outside in, the shade - like the plant life it represents - can improve self-esteem, reduce anxiety and heighten awareness of one’s surroundings.” - Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
