pantone-greenery-2017

Well here we are in 2017……and if you are anything like myself then I had only just started getting used to writing 2016…..when its all change again !!

So its a New Year and a New Hue and according to the lovely Pantone colour people ‘Greenery’ or Pantone 15-0343TCX is the colour of the year.pantone-greenery-2

Its funny because for the past 8 months or so I have been pondering the zestiness of green and wanting to inject some of that colour into my Living room to brighten things up alittle and rev up the taupes and greys that I love so much, at the moment purple is my pop of colour in the room.
