Flooring Inspiration: “Greenery”, Pantone’s Colour of the Year

January 23, 2017 10:36 am Published by

Light Shining into a Green Forest As we near the end of January – can you believe it? – predicted trends and designs are coming into play.

And whilst our 2017 flooring predictions are making waves, we thought we’d take the time to explore greenery.

Recently announced by Pantone as their colour of the year you should expect to see shades of nature in every corner of interior design.

Find out more below and how you can incorporate the theme into your home:

Greenery 15-0343 TCX

Breathing new life into your interiors, we think this choice is an excellent one. Whether for your floors, walls, terrariums, botanically-themed wall paper, paint, or accent furniture, the colour is symbolic of a fresh start, growth, and vitality. The perfect option for the new year.

Combined with the emerging trend to both recycle and upcycle, the colour encourages you to bring the outside in and make nature a centrepiece of your home. The colour choice has been described by Pantone as a “tangy yellow-green that speaks to our need to explore, experiment, and reinvent. Illustrative of flourishing foliage, the fertile attributes of Greenery signals one to take a deep breath, oxygenate, and reinvigorate”.

 “Quirky” Shades of Green

Call us bias, but if you truly want to embrace this wonderful colour, then we’d start with new floors. And as we long to say goodbye to the cold and embrace the Summer we’ve turned to Alternative Flooring for florals, patterns, and bold colour in both their Quirky and Quirky B collections.

In doing so they have helped to create new designs in a range of contemporary colours with designs of oversized leaf patterns, shades of green, and palm prints such as these great examples above.
