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.
What do you think of Pantone’s choice of Colour of the Year 2017? Have you got any plans to add a splash of greenery to your living room this year? If so, why not get some inspiration from Wayfair’s Pantone Colour of the Year 2017 ideas page? (HERE).

Oh it is a beautiful colour – the colour of stems – so full of life! My daughter Georgia’s favourite colour is green so sh will be happy! I love the contrast of this green against white – stems and white lilies – perfection! Thank you for the vibrant splash of colour all over my screen this morning lovely – it’s a very energising colour and uplifting! #MarvMondays
Thanks, Helen! It’s a very green post, isn’t it! It really does fill my screen with colour and make me smile!
I also love green. This particular shade used to be in my living room, throws and cushions with our brown leather sofa. I couldn’t bear to throw them away when we decorated so they are now are garden cushions with our brown rattan furniture. The throws are perfect for preventing burn to the back in extreme heat. Although I have to say that seems a distant memory just now. A wonderfully upbeat post, love your ideas and a really enjoyable read.
Aw, thanks, lovely lady! Glad you like it!
Oooh. Greenery. I love the vases, they are beautiful. I very nearly made our hallway green and was thinking of adding some botanical prints but in the end I felt that it would just make it too dark. However, in our forever house I will be introducing some green somewhere. I love it as it is a way of bringing nature indoors. 🙂
Yup, green needs to be in your forever home! It’s the colour of life!
Whoops – #marvmondays !
You’re a VIP now! You’re on a fast track to comment approval! Whoop! Go Emma!!
Some lovely bits and I especially like the plant. Green is such a nice energising colour too, lovely for spring. Wishful thinking right there! Thanks for joining us for #marvmondays x
Our last lodge Trevarno was themed in this colour. I didn’t know how up to date I was! #MarvMondays
loving the artificial plants Jane! Pricey but they last….forever !
Yes, it’s a bit pricey, but because it’s fake I won’t have to keep replacing it when I kill it!!
#marvmonday totes awk but I hate 2 colours green and orange. My son has picked a crocodile bedroom and the green is testing me…I’m thinking accessories are the way forward. I do like plants though – maybe I’ll add a cactus ?
Lol! All are welcome here! Even green haters 😉 Not awkward at all. I hate salmon pink…Unless it’s salmon!!
I can’t believe those plants/flowers aren’t real you know – they’re very convincing, especially the tulips. Love your green mood board on pinterest too.
I love that type of green colour. It’s what my old living room theme was and I still love it. #MarvMondays
Yep, love green but I also love my yellow and grey theme in this extension…I’m keeping the plants but saving my cushion for another room!
I only like the green of grass really
That’s okay, Becky, I’ll keep you 😉
I am loving all these Pantone posts, I really am not a green person but these are so inspiring and totally changing my view.
I need some Green now xx
Yay! Give green a chance, Kara! Glad you’re enjoying the posts.
I’m a big green fan – it’s so fresh and clean and well just green! Love it 🙂 #homeetc
Ooh I love your mini makeover, green is such a fresh colour – great to start the new year with.
It works SO well in your home — I bet you were leaping for joy when you saw what the colour of the year was!! 😉 I was a bit disappointed at first, if I’m honest, but I’m definitely warming to it. I’m a massive fan of green but wan’t quite sure how I could see ‘Greenery’ working in our home. That thought lasted all of 5 seconds though and I’m now planning on introducing it to the bathroom!!! 😉 Cxx #HomeEtc
