Green, the Pantone colour of the year combined with chocolate browns. Good enough to eat, this palette is!!
According to Pantone “Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.”
Why Choose Green?
Bascially green is now being introduced across all aspects of design and architecture. Green is seen as a sign of life and known to be a great balancer.
It is believed to be a colour to get rid of negative emotions and mental stress, it reduces over-stimulation and restores stability in other words balance and harmony. It is known in holistic circles as a colour of healing.
Wowsers, let’s get some green into a palette I thought. It’s everywhere in nature and not being a fan of the particular Pantone colour of the year huge, together with team we found our own tones. I wanted a real depth of colour in the greens to be complimented by a colour that would add a richness to the palette.
The Atlantic, ocean provided the inspiration. The result is rich, it’s sumptuous, it’s almost edible.
