Yes, 2017 is the year of the Rooster. It is also, however, the year of Pantone 15-0343 -- aka the colour "Greenery" which you can see here. Have a read through some of the description -- there is a definite political statement in this year's colour choice as we all try to look for the positive on the cloudy horizon.

"Greenery" just happens to be the colour of a jaunty spider plant that's already in our living room, so I added some new pillows to match using a timely aquisition of an Indian cotton table cloth from our local thrift shop.

Touted as a "life affirming shade.... emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality" I hope you find room for a little 15-0343 in your 2017 as well!

    Our foyer is painted Bennie Moore's Guilford Green. It was the 2015 Colour of the year. It is light, fresh and life affirming, even in the deep of winter. Go Greenery!
