The Greenery House

Hot in the Greenery House 

The new Pantone colour of the year is Greenery – a crisp apple shade of Green.  At first I decided that this colour definitely wouldn’t be for me, but after playing around with some research and ideas – Greenery did eventually start to grow on me (excuse the pun) .

After discovering a great match for walls at Designers Guild, the painted room sets on their website had me convinced that when used sparingly it could in-fact look rather good. I would recommend that if you use this colour on the walls, not to paint all of the room, as colours intensify when they are reflected on all surfaces and it could end up looking a bit dark.  If you choose just one or two feature walls and use white on the other walls, it will stay looking quite fresh.

I have chosen to style it with light wooden flooring and I liked the idea of using copper accessories and this contemporary concrete table.  I found a couple of chair options at Habitat – but chose this retro style and footstool, as I feel this colour lends itself to a quirky contemporary design.

Greenery is a great way to bring the outside in and the fashion for the revival of houseplants makes it easy to do some inexpensive accessorising.  I love the new Geometric Terrariums that are around at the moment and found these copper designs on The Urban Botanist website.  They have some great ideas and I had to include this lovely succulent wall planter.  Both terrariums and wall planters come complete with plants or empty for you to try your hand at your own indoor gardening.
