We speak to top designers about the lean towards green, inspired by Pantone’s Greenery


If you’re feeling a little hesitant about introducing the green trend into your interiors, take a look at the tips and design advice from the best names in the industry…

“Inspired by nature, the versatile green palette always works well in the kitchen. Whether the paler hues of pastel sage or the vibrancy of vivid lime, green is the on-trend colour for 2017.”

Darren Taylor, managing director, Searle & Taylor

“Opting for the fresh Pantone-inspired greenery tone helps de ne the indoor-outdoor feel of this interior; bringing the outside in by reflecting a sense of nature within the kitchen. Using a vibrant, citrus tone, as an accent area, not only really freshens up the scheme but also imbues character and interest to the design.”

Sarah Henshall, designer at The Kitchen People of Lindfield.

“Greenery symbolises the hope we collectively yearn for. The more submerged people are in their modern realities, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world.” Leatrice Eiseman, executive director, Pantone Colour Institute.

 Utopia editor, Frances Leate suggests…

“If you’re not sure about specific colour combinations, use tester pots and paint the colour onto large sheets of plain paper; then stick them on walls or on to furniture and see how the light plays over them during the course of a day.”
