Revamp your space with Pantone Colour of the Year 2017: Greenery.
When Wayfair challenged bloggers to revamp their living space using Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year, Greenery, I jumped at the chance.
Why? Because I absolutely love green! It’s my favourite colour. I’ve got green bar stools, green handbags, green pens, green cooking accessories, green…Get the picture? I. Love. It! No wonder I was delighted when Pantone announced they’d selected a colour from the green palette for this year’s influential hue.
Greenery is a gorgeous green, too. Usually lime green is my ‘go to’ green: It’s so vibrant and colourful and makes me happy. However, Greenery has turned my head. It’s a muted lime. A sophisticated lime. A lime for ‘grown-ups’. So, move over ‘in yer face’ lime! I’ve fallen in love with the calmness and serenity of your sensible older sister, Greenery!

I’ve had lots of fun browsing online for Greenery inspired ideas over the last few weeks. Originally I’d planned on selecting half a dozen green-themed items for my mood boards, to inspire you to revamp your living space. However, I got a little bit carried away and ended up dedicated an entire Pinterest board to the Pantone Colour of the Year! Ooops! What can I say? I told you a love, love, love green!
This has to be one of my favourite Pinterest boards to date, so I hope you enjoy having a good rummage around!
Pantone Colour of the Year 2017: Greenery.
I’ve gone green!
When Wayfair challenged me to reinvent my living space by throwing Greenery into the mix, I had a look at their greenery inspired ideas on their blog and browsed through their extensive range of products. With so many lovely things on their website, I was spoilt for choice, but finally settled on three ‘green-themed’ pieces which I felt would transform our space and induce feelings of calmness and tranquillity.
1. Artificial Taro Plant (Geko Products), £36.99.
The first thing I wanted to include in my Greenery inspired revamp was a plant. Plants and flowers are a fantastic way to add a touch of greenery to your home. However, but up until now, our home has been devoid of plants. That’s because I’m terrible at looking after them! I can make a cactus beg for mercy! Luckily Wayfair had the perfect the solution to my plant-murdering ways, with a range of artificial plants and flowers on their website. Result!
I selected an Artificial Taro Plant by Geko Products and I’m very pleased with the quality. It arrived well packaged and each of the leaves were individually wrapped. Beth had fun attaching all the leaves to the stems. I think it looks quite realistic and it feels high quality too, coming in a ‘weighted’ pot. To complete the look, I bought a lovely green plant pot from HomeSense. To be honest, it’s a bit too small and the plastic plant pot peeps above the rim, but I like the colour so I’ll keep it!
2. Two-tone vase, £26.99.
I bought some beautiful artificial tulips a few weeks ago. They look and feel so realistic. They also have the added bonus of being ‘Jane-proof’. I’d been looking for a suitable vase for them so when I spotted this green glass Two Tone Vase on the Wayfair website, I knew it would be perfect.
3. Gabi Quadro Cushion Cover (Dekoria), £37.99
Soft furnishings like cushions and throws add much-needed texture, as well as colour, to a room. I love the Gabi Quatro cushion cover from Dekoria. It’s tactile and fleecy and the beautiful striped piping is a lovely finishing touch.
The transformation is complete.
My love affair with green continues! I’m delighted with my Greenery revamp. The muted greens add an aura of tranquillity to our space, offering a more ‘grown-up vibe’, than the bold, bright lime of our kitchen furniture and accessories.
I may be biased, but after finishing this mini colour makeover, I have to say that Greenery, with its muted take on lime, is a worthy choice for Pantone Colour of the Year 2017.
Over to you.
