Trend Alert: Botanical Green

As we start looking forward to decorating trends that will be hitting the market in 2017, one colour that is becoming dominant is green. Green is the colour of balance and harmony; it also renews and restores depleted energy. From a meaning of colours perspective, green is also the colour of growth, the colour of spring, of renewal and rebirth. It is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of wellbeing. This is why there is so much of this relaxing colour on the earth, and why we need to keep it that way. We have some ideas on how to incorporate this versatile colour into your living space

Big leaves
The easiest and most cost effective way to bring green into your home is with leaves from your garden.  Go dramatic with large banana leaves, placing them into a ceramic pot or tall glass vase makes a big statement


Go Bold
Love the colour? Go bold by incorporating a large piece of green furniture with a neutral colour scheme


Framed pictures
Adding a pop of green works well in pictures with white frames, look for bright colours to guarantee a stunning focal wall

If you want a striking effect for a bland wall, consider botanical themed wallpaper


Quick Change
If you are still undecided on the colour but would like to try the look, consider a small room in your home and make a small change. A botanical shower curtain is perfect and easy to swop out when your mood changes
