A green lifestyle is a growing global trend – in the ways we choose to live our lives; in the foods we eat; and in the environments we build. From cycling enthusiasts to lovers of organic and deconstructed foodstuffs, healthy and green living has become a natural extension of many modern lifestyles.
Influencing the very spaces in which we live, work and breathe, we see ‘Greenery’ trending on all counts – and deservedly being labelled as the 2017 Pantone Colour of the Year. The green trend signifies nature and freshness. It brings the outdoors indoors and encourages us to live healthier lifestyles and be mindful of sustainable interior choices. According to Pantone, the colour of the year is ‘a symbolic selection based on a snapshot of what is taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude’. At Marcia Loves It, we believe that to become ‘green’ is not simply updating accessories but is a conscious lifestyle choice. Growing one’s own vegetables is not a trend; it is about new beginnings and redefining how we live. Using ‘greenery’ in a bathroom as an example, brings nature indoors and establishes a space of rejuvenation and relaxation by way of overall health and wellbeing. Greenery is part of nature and a reflection of warmth and freshness. Nothing in nature clashes. The pantone is extremely versatile and is relevant for all four seasons. Using natural accessories and quality, sustainable products are a great way to connect indoors with the outdoors Andrew Taylor, Managing Director for Bathroom Butler, leading provider of stainless steel bathroom accessories says, “We’re very cognisant of international design trends that influence the way in which we live. It’s awesome to see such a positive trend extend further than just a few décor accessories and actually become a lifestyle choice.” Bathroom Butler, regardless of the fact that they work a niche lifestyle space, continue to push the envelope in research and development of new products and design portfolios. “We also aim to deliver quality that is environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable,” concluded Taylor.
