Greenery by Pantone
Forget the powdered tones of pink Quartz and Serenity blue, Pantone’s colours of the year for 2016. Instead, say hello to the bright green of Greenery, 2017’s colour of the year (as seen in the Tollens collection). As the name suggests, this green evokes the freshness of spring helping create the illusion of nature at home. With its yellow nuances, Greenery evokes vitality and optimism. It is best paired with neutral tones, shades of blue and green as well as pastels, bringing to life both vintage and modern styles.
The grey blue of Dulux Valentine
Following golden ochre as colour of the year 2016, blue grey is 2017’s winner according to the brand Delux Valentine. Blue grey is a gentle and accommodating colour that works well with contemporary, classic and rustic interiors. When combined with natural shades, blue grey will bring a chic bohemian spirit to any interior. When paired with plum tones, it will evoke romanticism, and when married with copper, red or blue topaz, it will infuse the atmosphere with a luxurious touch.
