Pantone recently announced it had selected an acidic bright green called ‘Greenery’ as the 2017 colour of the year. It’s a bold choice, as you can see, and it’s the perfect tool for bringing the outdoors in to carry on the trend of merging living spaces.
Throughout history green has been the colour of growth and renewal. When used in interior design, it has the power to make a room a sanctuary away from the stresses of modern life, something that’s restorative and full of well-being.
With this shade of green being super vibrant it can be difficult to know how to incorporate it into your interior, which is exactly why we’ve compiled a few options here to help you look at this oh-so-fresh colour a little differently.
Partnering with jewel colours, such as sapphire and citrine, is a contemporary way to harness lime green’s energetic tones. Try adding splashes of the colour in soft furnishing and on furniture to add an acid bright element to your colour scheme.

If bold colour combinations are too much for your taste and you prefer the subtler approach, use lime green sparingly on furniture and elsewhere around the room as a feature rather than the main attraction.
For example, why not try half painted wooden tables for a contemporary look, a painted floor in a stark white room for a burst of colour, or even a decorative green wallpaper to offset a home office – all perfect executions for the shade.
Finally, for a more luxurious feel, team lime green up with shades of grey. The cool grey tones work perfectly with the bright colour pops of green, producing a fresh and modern look.
For extra depth and texture, keep the limes gloss and the greys matt. Mixing finishes like this makes for an interesting concept that’s perfect for kitchen units and walls.
Now you’re in the know, there’s no excuse to lag behind in colour in 2017. Whether it’s bold or subtle, add some lime green to your interior for a revitalising and stylish boost that’s going to be perfect for the New Year!
