INSPIRATION: JANUARY 2017

January 2, 2017

Happy New Year! 

January is my favourite month of the year – To me, it feels like a new beginning filled with optimism and many opportunities. With that in mind, there is no better colour than Greenery for this month’s inspiration. Greenery is, in fact, Pantone’s colour of the year for 2017: 

The yellow-green color was largely picked because it represents rebirth and regeneration. Laurie Pressman, vice president with Pantone Color Institute.

Associated with nature, greenery is a refreshing, sunny and calming colour. An easy colour to look at, it is a hue that catches your attention and clearly creates feelings of happiness. 

This hue is growing in me as I am finding that it can make a room look and feel desirable when used artistically. Being one of the key trends for 2017, Greenery is going to bring lots of décor possibilities and will show through botanical wallpaper, green painted walls, luxurious upholstery, green accent furniture, terrariums and home accessories. Decorating with this vibrant colour, will not only instantly enliven your home but will help you feel happy, refreshed and renewed. 

I have created a beautiful mood board illustrating this trendy colour, along with some lovely quotes which currently resonate with me right now. On this note, I would like to wish you all, good health, lots of happiness, and amazing success in 2017!
