What does Pinterest say?
Pantone's Colour of the Year represents what industry 'experts' expect to see in 2018, but the Pinterest 100 List may more accurately reflect what the general public want to see.
The company's latest Pinterest 100 list makes for interesting reading. Based on analysis from search and save patterns it suggests that Pinterest users are aspiring towards Sage Green tones for their interior decor.
Shades of green have been seeing a renaissance over the past year, with saves for "Sage" specifically rising by 170%. Autumn and Winter saw interiors magazines splashed with deep greens to rival the colour of your Christmas tree, but in the spirit of the New Year, it seems that Sage Green will be the earthier, muted alternative that will take us into Spring. Judging by the latest update to the Ferm Living showroom, it appears the Danes may just think so too.
Representing renewal, and promoting harmony and balance, green is a colour that has often been overlooked in favour of more classic neutrals. This year, decorate the whole room in Sage Green to create a warm space accented with white, grey or navy accessories.
