Greenery Is The Pantone Colour Of The Year For 2017

Pantone has announced their colour of the yearGreenery. In years past we've had Rose Quartz and Serenity for 2016, Marsala for 2015 and Radiant Orchid for 2014.  The last three years have focused on a similar set of colours, while this year is a major shift towards a vibrant and revitalizing green. 

When it comes to choosing the color of the year, Pantone has explained that the process works like this. "The process, which takes about nine months, is highly subjective, as Pantone admits, and more about instinct than science. Essentially, the team fans out across the globe and explores industries, to collect what they refer to as “proof points” — from car shows, on the runways, in decorator showcases and so on. At a certain stage they begin to notice meaningful overlap and narrow down the choices. Then one shade achieves critical mass." 
Pantone describes Greenery as "a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate."

Pantone has already paired Greenery with 10 different palettes that are sure to appeal to designers and architects, no matter what mood they choose to evoke. Whether you're still in love with Rose Quartz and Serenity from last year, or want something vibrant, such as their Moody Blooms palette, there is something for every taste. This is truly a versatile color. 

We don't advise painting all of your walls in this colour, however, as it would be a bit overwhelming. Use the colour instead as a focal point to draw the attention, like the front door, to create a welcoming and invigorating feeling. “The Pantone green is a darker lime, bringing nature into the home and getting us to think about the beauty of gardens and lush forests,” says Erika Woelfel, vice president of colour and creative service at Behr Paints.

There are two things to keep in mind when working with Greenery. 

Keep the Mood in Mind.
This is a very vibrant and active colour. It's best suited to a room that sees a lot of activity, rather than somewhere to sleep or relax. 

Remember the Lighting
For a room that doesn't get much natural light, the colour will add a sense of energy. However, for rooms that do get plenty of sunlight, the changing light throughout the day will affect how you see and think of the colour. It's best to paint large sections of the wall first, and observe it over a week or so, before committing to painting. 

At LWC, we can't wait to start working with this colour and continue bringing the latest and greatest trends to the Australian furnishing industry.

Impressive Results When You Use Experienced Furniture Hires

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. The same can be said for first impressions. That is why it is so important for property developers, property management companies, and apartment construction businesses to ensure the visual result of their work is impressive. The visual is what people remember and impacts them more than what they read or hear about your property. Securing a designer to assist you with furnishing set-ups yields great results. Whether you have a 1 bedroom apartment or high-rise serviced apartment, there is no job too big or small for Lindsay Wilson. Lindsay Wilson offers a high level of experience when you use them for your furnishing needs. Here are 3 reason experienced designers benefit your properties.


Experienced professionals have a keen eye for the “right” look.

With over 126 years combined service in the industry of interior designing, we are experienced at developing just the right look to impress your clients. Whether you need old charm or modern style, we fit the furniture and surrounding decor to match and create the atmosphere you desire.

Experienced professionals complete the job in a timely manner.

Experience pays off in other ways, too, such as moving quickly to deliver the completed job. With a large selection of furniture already on hand and a global supply chain, Lindsay Wilson is able to put together a fantastic design in a short span of time.

Experienced professionals have the ability to work aesthetically within a given space.

With the years of practice comes skill at knowing just how to arrange the furniture and d├ęcor to make it most appealing.  Another challenge some properties face is space deficits. However, with the proper design and furniture layout, smaller units look larger than they actually are. This helps with sales because the consumer's visual impression is usually more relevant than the actual dimensions they’ve read.
At Lindsay Wilson, we take the big and small jobs and dedicate our experienced team to bringing you the best in interior design. Contact us today to find out more information!
