Go Green And Zest Up Your Life!
Pantone announced its Colour Of The Year for 2017 – Greenery – and we couldn’t help but simply crush on it. The colour is vibrant, fresh, and really soothing on the eye. The name itself has a refreshing sound to it. Belonging to the cooler family of colours, green is a rejuvenating hue. It naturally evokes a feeling of peace and relaxation due to its many associations with aspects of Nature.
So when Greenery was declared to be the tone to look forward to in the coming year, we were only too happy to hunt for ways to incorporate them into our daily life. Here we share our discoveries. Do comment and let us know what your favourite means is to infuse the colour into your lifestyle.
A Green Dress: A maxi or a mini? What’s your style? Greenery is sure to adapt to whatever it is. A satin or silk maxi is perfect for your resort soiree while a mini paired with heels and smart accessories is ideal for a night about town. While petite girls can carry off the hue in a solid coloured dress, women with fuller bodies are advised to go for prints or colour blocking.
A Green Shirt: Who said dressing to work had to be only about wearing dull and drab colours? Zest up your wardrobe with a pop of Greenery by pairing a green shirt with smart white or beige pants. Men can team the colour with black slim fit trousers. Throw on a blazer if you feel your green is blaring too much or opt for a self-print and shine through the day.
A Green Bag: Not too confident of wearing the bold shade in your attire? Snag on a smart green tote which can be carried from day into night. Men can carry a smart laptop bag in the colour. Be it a leather case or bag made from printed organic fabric, Greenery is sure to brighten up your day.
A Green Bed Set: The use of this luscious colour doesn’t need to be restricted to only your wardrobe. Give your home a dose of freshness with an invigorating bed set or throw pillows in the colour of the year. A white bedspread with nature-inspired motifs or embroidery will enliven your mood every time slink into your personal space for a cosy snooze.
A Green Vase: Pretty flowers make a pretty sight, but they look even prettier when placed in a beautiful and bold green coloured flower vase. Go for a colour contrast with orange or yellow flowers in the vase or keep it ethereal by placing elegant white long stemmed blooms, and add a burst of liveliness to your décor.
