Ever since Pantone announced “Greenery” as its colour of 2017, our passion for all things botanical has thrived, with cacti and succulent motifs proving particularly popular in home furnishing and stationery. We reckon this trend is only set to grow, so don’t miss out.

Here’s seven easy ways to get some greenery into your life with botanical prints, designs and trinkets!
