Colour of the Moment: The Joy of Green

The New Year has arrived and with it a wealth of design forecasts on colour, materials and how we’ll be living in 2019 and beyond. While Pantone has announced its colour of the year as an energetic Living Coral, Li Edelkoort’s PhilipFimmano, visiting Sydney and Melbourne this week, spoke of the importance of soothing interiors and the rise of terracotta tones, browns accented with fresh highlights of earthy pink and — our personal favourite — sage and olive greens. London-based trend agency WGSN pushes the mood for green from softer more natural botanical hues into a futuristic “neo mint” direction, which it describes as an “oxygenating, fresh tone that harmonises science and technology with nature.”

Whatever your personal preference, one thing is clear, in 2019 it’s easier being green.
