For those who follow our Instagram or have read my previous blogs , you will know, our love affare with green has been an ongoing one! We added our Peridot Stain resistant velvet to our House collection, which is now becoming one of our best selling fabrics, The beautiful, Tallulah chaise gets the highest number of likes whenever we post on on Instagram. So, when it was no surprise when Pantone, experts in colour , announced there colour for 2017 would be ‘Greenery 15-0343’.

This colour feel so right for this year, and in particular this time of year. Green, and in particular, this bright , New Green, represents everything we associate with spring. The bursts of green, pushing there heads out of the soil, willing the sun to shine (which today, thankfully it is…) bright green buds showing on the apple and oak tree, at last, the first signs  winter is passing and brighter, longer days are in sight.

Green positive, uplifting and motivating colour. But if you fall in love with this colour, how can you integrate it in to your home? Unless you are fully committed, painting your walls might be a step to far. Instead ,

consider combining a softer green with , grey upholstery and muted accessories, as with have with the maximus (below)

  go for a tone on tone palette , light green walls and richer green upholstery.
