Colour me green

Benjamin Moore recently announced their choice for the 2015 colour of the year – HC 116 Guildford Green.  “A neutral that’s natural. A silvery green that works with, well, everything. No worries. No second thoughts. Just a brush, dipped in a can, whooshed on a wall, and a whole lot of happily ever after.” – Ellen O’Neill, Creative Director, Benjamin Moore

I couldn’t agree more, I think this is a very classic colour, which won’t date after 2015 is over. You can be safe with this colour for years to come and in many ways it is a neutral. This particular silvery shade of green is beautiful with aqua blues, royal blues, greys, many shades of plum, pink or taupe.

So, I thought I would look for a few bedroom accessories that would go with HC 116. Heirloom Linens in the Broadmead shopping centre, has an absolutely beautiful duvet set on display that would be stunning with HC 116 as a backdrop. It’s called Extravaganza and it looks like a watercolour painting, splashing scrumptious shades of dark ocean blue, magenta, spring yellow, and snow whites.  Each time I looked at it, I saw something new. The duvet cover starts at $299 and shams at $99.

Downtown at Chintz on Wharf Street, I found these fabulous Tibet lamb cushions. They would be so much fun on a bed that was done in white on white, grey or putty. I can also envision these on an off-white sofa or chair with silver accents or antique gold accessories on a table beside. These furry, fluffy, soft kitty-like pillows come round or square and start at $79.

If you’re looking for a soft new neutral with a silver undertone, HC 116 may be your colour for 2015.
