To me it says spring, very clean and fresh. Here at the Conservatory, we love this selection. Our greenhouse is filled with bright, true greens and nature is a huge part of everything we do. Pantone refers to it as, “A life-affirming shade, emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.” Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute executive director, told the New York Times. “This is the color of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature. It speaks to what we call the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew.” No doubt, we will be seeing Greenery influence all forms of design… fashion, interiors and beauty.
And, of course, we anticipate Greenery will also find it’s way into wedding designs and trends for the coming year.
The most obvious influence will be floral. For greens, I think we will see a movement away from the sage and dark greens and towards brighter, leafy greens. Ruscus, pittosporum and podoscarpus are great options. And succulents are available in the brighter green tones.
There are also several floral varieties that bring in the bright green and add texture and dimension to bouquets and centerpieces.
An invitation suite is another place we love the use of the eye-catching green. Here are few options we discovered on Minted.
A signature cocktail is a fun way to bring in the bright green. Any cocktail featuring Chartreuse, the bright green, sweet, herbal liquer works.
And for dessert, a traditional butter cream cake becomes a show stopper when styled with lush succulents. Like this cake by Sweet Heather Anne in Ann Arbor. Stunning!
