We’re noticing Green featuring in a lot of Spring Summer 2017 homeware ranges and at Chris James Homes, we’re absolutely loving how fresh and zingy it can be to brighten up our homes this Spring.
Now it may be something to do it being named Pantone colour of the year 2017. The guys there described their winning colour ‘Greenery’ as:
“A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.
Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.”
As mentioned by Pantone, green is such a versatile colour, it can be used in a variety of schemes and is “trans-seasonal”. Pantones ‘Transitions’ and ‘Calm it Down’ pallets are our favourite combinations of Greenery in use:
So lets see some of our favourite interpretations of the green trend.
Neptune – ‘Greenery’
Neptune is one of our favourite homeware companies and their ‘Greenery’ can shows exactly why. The trend features two types of green – a rich emerald green and a calming sage green – which used together creates a gorgeous contrast in vibrancy and serenity.

Laura Ashley – ‘Floral Heritage’ and ‘Timeless Country’
Laura Ashley has featured green in their ‘Floral Heritage’ trend – which is heavily influenced by botanicals and bringing outdoors into the home – and ‘Timeless Country’ – which is based on softer, more muted shades of green.

Barker & Stonehouse – Go green for 2017
Barker and Stonehouse hasn’t done a specific range based on green, but in their recent blog they compare the colour of the year against their product range. As with Neptune and Laura Ashley, they explore green in two ways. First is a dark earthy green palette which creates a feeling of drama. Second, latin-American-esque green which creates a tropical, zesty and uplifting effect we we love – especially with the touches of copper.
What do you think of the green trend for 2017? Yay or nay, let us know!
