You may have noticed the gorgeous jewel tones of blue and green popping up all over interiors this past season, these prominent hues has now also become a staple in my wardrobe. There is a blurred line between fashion and interior trends, I love how the most popular trends are always overlapping. This comes in handy when hitting a creative block with my personal style, I always end up turning to my favourite interiors for inspiration. This gives me a fresh and unique approach to style, while keeping my looks up to date.
Green has become one of my favourite go to colours for fashion. Moss green, Emerald Green, Basil Green and Seaweed Green are just a few of my favourites from this broad colour spectrum. There’s just something about green that I can’t get enough of, Pantone knew best when they named Greenery as their colour of the year for 2017. “Greenery symbolises the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Institute. I couldn’t agree more, with our lives taken over by technology and social media I crave being close to nature to get my boost of energy.
I put this look together for the Printeriors launch hosted by Artlab. With Cape Town weather you never know what you’re in for, so this outfits worked out perfectly. I paired this emerald green suede high waist mini skirt with my favourite super fury jumper from Mr P. Over all the look has a modern 70’s feel to it which I quite dig. (kinda channeling my inner Jackie Burkhart from all time favourite show “That 70’s Show”)
Green being the colour of life, renewal and energy, I understand why I’m so strongly drawn to this rich colour. Below I have selected a few of my favourite green interiors that will leave you “Green With Envy.” What’s your favourite colour at the moment? Comment down below 🙂
