Pantone has announced Greenery is its colour of 2017, so we have been on the lookout for pieces in this uplifting shade.
1 Cut a rug
If you intend to embrace Pantone’s Greenery, we suggest introducing just one or two pieces and not overdoing it. Items such as this plain green rug from Ian Snow are a solid starting point.

2 Floral arrangements
Give your tableware an ethereal theme this season by combining green accents with floral motifs. These pretty napkin rings from Zara Home are charming yet subtle enough that they won’t detract from the rest of your table setting.

3 Saving print
Fans of print media – be it magazines or newspapers – know of the never-ending struggle of trying to neatly store old editions. This magazine rack in green by Japanese brand Kanaya is the ideal solution. It will work perfectly in either the bathroom or living room.

This year, have a bit of fun with offbeat pieces. This oversized green pear from Bull & Stein makes for a somewhat unconventional decorative element and is sure to be a conversation starter.

5 Phone home
Ditch the smart technology and introduce some vintage pieces into your space. This 1960s retro-style Trim telephone from Yellow Octopus is fully functional and will offer some much-needed digital downtime.
