Seven ways to get Greenery into your life
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!
1) Cosy up with Cacti
Succulents have been the hipster’s home-plant choice for years. The plant’s pretty shapes really lend themselves to fabric designs and soft furnishings. This succulent cushion from The Drifting Bear Company is ideal for getting this on-trend motif incorporated into your lounge.
2) Light up your life
It’s not just about the botanical prints! Be playful with this plant theme with this quirky cactus-shaped neon lamp from Debenhams
3) Posca your own pot
Get your craft on and use Posca pens in three green shades to draw cute cacti on mini ceramic pots.
