On-trend Green

Our June issue on sale now features 75 Warm Winter Ideas, one of which is the catwalk-to-couch trend demonstrating how fashion and décor are interlinked (see page 50 of our June issue). We’ve highlighted green as one of the colours of the moment. As a personal favourite, I’ve selected some green items that reflect this trend. Cécile & Boyd’s have released these delightful porcelain green parrots which are a fun addition to any home. They come in two different sizes – R660 for the 25cm and R540 for the 21cm. The Volvo CX60 is a sleek SUV also available in a shade of this colour. It stays true to the brand’s reputation for safety but the exterior styling is the real winner with its softly shaped corners and contemporary design. Starting from R433 000. Vitra have launched another dazzling number with the arrival of their limited-edition Panton dark lime chair. It will do wonders for upping the mood in any space. Made of polypropylene with a satin surface, it’s available from Twiice and sells for R2 168. Here’s to going green this winter.   Naomi Larkin Editor - House and Leisure
