Interior designers are loving the vibrant and fun spring colours that are popping up in many home decor ideas. At West of Main, we are forecasting that you will see the colour Greenery in many interior design schemes this Spring and Summer.
Pantone was on point when they named the 2017 colour of the year Greenery 15-0343. It is a revitalising shade symbolic of a new start that has the ability to uplift any interior decor scheme. This tone evokes flourishing foliage and emanates the lush layers found in the great outdoors. Pantone suggests that, “the more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world.” The colour Greenery reminds people of the freshness of that clear greenscape we all seek on those summer afternoons.
Other than Pantone’s colour Greenery , other tones of greens are being skillfully featured this season. You will find hues of greens in furniture accent pieces and in verdant plants intricately tucked away into a beautiful space. As the backdrop to these crisp greens, interior designers are using soft or vibrant pinks. When pinks coexist with green accents in an interior design setting, they add a light and congenial flavour to the atmosphere. Pinks create that element of “fun” in a sea of serious greens. Lastly, add timber tones and earthy embellishments to finalize and soften the look of the decor. See more of these colour combinations in images below:
In this West of Main home decor project, we styled the kitchen with vibrant pinks and greens to provide a pop of colour in an otherwise monochromatic colour scheme. Check out more Interior Design Ideas from our Classic White Kitchen Design .
The Tarul plant otherwise known as an elephant ear leaf is one of West of Main’s favourite accents to style a photoshoot. Check out more of our Westboro Infill Interior Design project.
Tip: We sourced the plant from a local favourite Bloomfields Flower shop in Ottawa

Going out to a restaurant isn’t solely about good food and good service. Of course, this is important, but it’s also the ambiance, atmosphere, and social experience that keeps guests returning. Many design elements come into play and considerably influence your overall dining experience.
“It was important to us to give back and to create an environment that is enriching to both customers and staff. It’s cliché, but that’s what really sets us apart. We wanted to create a culture of care. That’s exactly what I see every time I’m in one of our restaurants.” -Stephanie Howarth
