The blue-green tones of succulents are right on trend this year. Take this literally and get some lovely potted succulents or consider these tones in cushions, a thick woven throw, or ceramic vases and pots. PANTONE “SMOKE GREEN” AND “OPAL BLUE” offer soothing and relaxing tones that work especially well in bedrooms. They also work perfectly against neutral coffee and rich caramel tones. DULUX “FIBRE MOSS” is a more grey-tinged green which makes for a light, easy-to-live-with tone, softening colourways and complementing soft pinks, muted blues and dusty yellows. RESENE “KANDINSKY” AND “SECRETS” add a touch of fresh mint and soft airy tones to spaces. They’re a subtle hit of colour in natural pastel shades, great to use in soft furnishings.
