Now that Pantone has decided that "Greenery" will be the colour of the year for 2017, we're updating our pads with some nifty little purchases

Green is definitely the new black. Whether it signifies a more eco-conscious society or psychologically restores a sense of balance, green is in — further affirmed by the authorities of colour, Pantone, who recently announced "Greenery" as their Colour of the Year 2016. We've been through a lot in 2016 (think: Celebrity deaths, Brexit, Donald Trump and societal, environmental and natural disasters in general), so this move comes naturally. Green revitalises, refreshes and renews a space, signaling a time for calm and consciousness.

Which is why there's no better time to make some changes to your home than now. A shift to a more green physical space will alleviate the mental monkeys jostling about in your head, welcoming you into a home that's a respite from the corporate structures present at your workplace. You don't necessarily need a new wash of colour over your walls — all it takes is a little switch of lamps and lights from Artemide and Petite Friture, a chair from SP01 Outdoor at Space Furniture which you can use both indoors and outdoors and funky glassware from Nude you can admire as you consume some good old H20 to nourish your soul. Scents come with sensibility as well — Tom Dixon's Earth candle mimics the lushness of a forest with mint, guaiac wood and cedar wood for a fresh start to 2017.
