Global colour authority, Pantone has released its Colour of the Year for 2017. Pantone 15-0343, known colloquially as Greenery, is symbolic of hopefulness and new beginnings. Looking to nature for a reprieve from the pressures of modern life, Pantone’s choice is a life-affirming shade of zesty yellow-green evocative of the first days of spring.
A bold departure from 2016’s softer shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity, Greenery is a compelling reminder of the vitality of the natural world. Described by Pantone as “nature’s neutral”, Greenery’s fortifying attributes lend themselves to interior design. In the home, the shade responds to a broader desire to de-stress, reinvigorate and reconnect.
Inspired by Pantone’s selection, Sussex is offering Greenery as a colour choice across their tapware. It comes as an opportunity to showcase the brand’s ability to consistently offer on-trend colour options to their clients.
“The decision came naturally. The colour is revitalising and we see that aligning with what our customers are looking for,” says Sussex Director Vanessa Katsanevakis. For Katsanevakis, bringing Greenery into the home is a simple solution to creating a sense of calm.
Sussex is uniquely poised, as Australia’s only true manufacturer, to look to international design trends and respond to these in a timely manner. Handcrafted in Melbourne, customisation is at the heart of the Sussex process.
“We’re lucky that we’re able to offer customers truly bespoke solutions, whether that means colour matching a particular paint swatch or combining different finishes.”
Greenery is one of an endless number of possible colour choices available to Sussex customers.
