As Pantone, the global colour authority, has revealed Greenery to be its 2017 Colour of the Year, many are searching for ways to incorporate this stylish forest hue into wardrobes, beauty looks and of course, into their homes. Hanging original art is a quick but sophisticated way to pay homage to the trend. Art2Arts, a foremost online art gallery with its finger on the pulse of seasonal style, reveals its huge selection of contemporary paintings that are perfect for adding a burst of this fashionable colour to walls across the country.
Those that want to adhere to the Greenery tone exactly are sure to find the winning shade in Rock Pool, painted by the talented Louise Mead. This zesty green Pantone colour can be seen amongst the equally as vibrant yellow, orange and pink of the flowers found floating on top of the organic watery scene, creating an exotic, fresh piece of abstract art that fits the trend exactly.
Michelle Gibbs, Director at Art2Arts revealed, “Pantone’s Colour of the Year predictions are always exciting, with 2016’s Rose Quartz & Serenity seeping into design, life and culture over the past 12 months. In 2017, I’m in no doubt that we’re sure to see more of the bright Greenery shade. Three months into the year, it’s already apparent as collectors and interior designers alike are gravitating towards artwork in these tones.”
While Pantone is an expert in colour, its yearly trend predictions relate to more than just a shade of paint, taking into account wider cultural influences and inspirations. This year, Greenery is thought to evoke an optimistic feeling of new beginnings, rejuvenation and vitality. While it may not adhere to the colour palette exactly, Re-pack, Remove, Relocate by Tony Broadbent is infused with the same character and charm that Greenery signifies, inspired by the vision of pre-empting better outcomes and fresh memories.
Ultimately, as suggested by the name, Greenery also represents an underlying appreciation of nature. Described as ‘nature’s neutral’, this shade’s popularity is largely due to civilisation craving more natural experiences as fast-paced modern life deprives people of them. Placing the viewer in the depth of a towering forest, with the sun seeping through the foliage, Rider by Tracy Butler offers the same natural immersive experience that this trend describes.
Hosting hundreds of pieces of original art, all created by emerging contemporary artists from across the UK, Art2Arts is a diverse platform for purchasing artwork to meet every colour and design trend.
