Hands up if you’re a fan of this year’s Pantone colour and its supporting palette! Anything that says nature and greenery sure has my attention though I admit that I was smitten and distracted by last year’s choices, Rose Quartz and Serenity. While I secretly wished for another pastel to rule 2017, I am glad that Pantone has decided on something better - Greenery. I love how Greenery reflects the calmness, vibrancy and vitality found in nature.
Being the dominant colour of nature, Greenery is easy on the eye and it brings much needed peace and tranquility to an otherwise hectic life. Perhaps that is one of the main reasons why Greenery was chosen. And since Greenery effortlessly complements muted and earthly tones, I foresee many of us drawing inspiration from nature. It seems like a Greenery theme is quickly gaining popularity with brides-to-be and event planners. Well… more on that later!
In the spirit of Greenery, I have chosen four products that I currently have a crush on.
1 // Avocado Iron On Patch
Avocados are possibly the best physical representation of the colour in focus - provided it has ripen beautifully. With this adorable iron on patch, you can casually incorporate this year’s hottest colour on a plain tote or breathe new life into an old denim. Easy peasy!
2 // Sarah's Bag 'The Adored' Clutch
Nothing says Greenery like green leaves. If you love sporting playful and arty bags, you will certainly love this minaudière that features intricately carved Monstera leaves and a pair of budgies as clasps.
3 // Sass & Belle Cactus Light
Cacti fans rejoice! Quirky and eye-catching, this cactus light with huge LED light bulbs will add a whole lot of cheer to any room or office desk space. All you need is two AA batteries and you’re all set.
4 // Stella McCartney Knuckle Sparklers iPhone Case
With this stylish and fun phone case, you get to accessorise your phone while decking your fingers with four Peridot blings! Unfortunately for Android users, this phone cover is currently available only for iPhone 6/6s. Boo.
What do you think of this year's Pantone colour? Yay or Nay? :)
