Thinking of updating your interior for the new year? One of the easiest ways to bring a fresh, new look into your home is with the latest colour trend.
According to design and colour experts, 2017 is all about shades of green.
From deep forest to mint and olive, green decor will add a natural, botanical-inspired look to our homes. Pantone recently announced their colour of the year; Greenery, a refreshing and revitalizing shade.
“Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.” Pantone
Celebrity interior designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard recently agreed that green is “strong again.” From lime green to emerald, the hue works throughout the home—whether it’s as a wall color or a room-filling rug.

California designer Becki Owens said “When I was growing up, forest green was everywhere, but we got sick of it and felt it was too heavy and formal. Now it’s making a modern, moody comeback.”
One of the best ways to make a bold statement in a room is with a green sofa. Keep it contemporary by choosing on-trend fabrics such as velvet. The Belmont Sofa is upholstered in a grass-coloured velvet fabric and features a retro-inspired shape with slim arms and tapered wooden legs.
For an easier and more affordable way to get the look, use green accessories to add a pop of contemporary colour to your interior. The Oleiros Vase is perfect for placing in the centre of a sideboard or dining table, while the Vintage Lamp is ideal if you love industrial style.
If you don’t want to replace your whole sofa, try adding a couple of the Teal & Green Cushions to your sitting room instead.
A rug will instantly transform a room by adding a large dose of on-trend colour to a space. The Pimlico Rug features a stylish striped design is a range of green shades.
Botanical-inspired shades are perfect for kitchen and dining areas, evoking a sense of renewal and restoration in a room. Justina Blakeney’s Jungalow kitchen demonstrates that when paired with plants and foliage, green looks fresh and contemporary.

While replacing your whole kitchen or redecorating may not be practical, chairs are a great way to tap into this trend with minimal effort. The Gustave Metal Dining Chair has a vintage vibe, with a rustic painted finish in garden green. Place around a wooden table for a contemporary mis-matched look.
For breakfast bars and smaller dining areas, the Keeler Metal Barstool in brown and green in a stylish choice.
