Scene on the Green

The hottest design trend for this Spring-Summer has captured the essence of the indoor-outdoor lifestyle, so no surprise that Pantone’s 2017 colour of the year is Greenery.

Varying shades of green that symbolise rejuvenation and revitalisation can currently be seen across catwalks, the high street, and green is THE go-to interior design colour.

From succulents, to glorious monstera plants, nature is entering our living and working spaces more than ever, not to mention the added benefit of improving our health.  (Fact: plants help reduce stress, increase productivity and improve indoor air quality.)

And BREATHE…

Greenery pairs well with many other colours; of course, the easiest way to add greenery to your lifestyle is (duh!) with pot plants, nevertheless there are plenty of other sources creating the ‘scene on the green’ this summer.

Here are some of our favourites:

Macrame

This macrame wall hanging has us dreaming of lazy beach days and sun-kissed afternoons (now we just need the weather to catch up!)  Until then we’ll just have to bring the sunshine inside and let this wall hanging take pride of place.  Fitting in perfectly in almost any room, try hanging yours above a desk or a chair for an instant cosy feel.
