THE GREEN Revolution
Words by Jemma Slevin
Pantone named ‘’Greenery Green’ the colour for 2017 and I for one am embracing this and love all the jungle and botanic prints that are holding trend since last year. Mixing this with a colonial touch to include dark woods, brass and an abundance of indoor plants, makes for a glamourous and sensual interior – pure escapism!

Be sure to have it in full view as you sip on your Gin and Tonic – the most thirst quenching and sophisticated drink, perfect for the tropics! From £25 a roll, Etsy.
