Earlier this year, Pantone announced “Greenery” as their colour of the year. Greenery, a zesty lime green, is symbolic of new beginnings. The colour also celebrates nature’s ability to revive and restore us. It’s all about bringing the bright colour into our daily modern lives when we can’t always retreat to nature. Now, if you follow us on Instagram, you will know that we love to escape the working week by popping offline, going camping with the TWB pups and getting out in nature, so there was definitely something that drew us in particular to this year’s colour.
This year’s colour should serve as a daily reminder to take a deep breath and reconnect on those days when we can’t get out into nature. Couldn’t we all use more of that! Greenery is something affirming to look to in a time of stress. It’s similar to a Japanese concept called forest bathing, which is “the practice of taking a short, leisurely visit to a forest for health benefits”. This is definitely something we can all get on board with, right? Apparently, it’s already taken off in the US as a ‘thing’, so just wait to hear the phrase more around the world too.
This restorative technique involves going into nature to let its therapeutic benefits heal you. It creates a sense of calm. If it sounds simple, that’s because it is! But, since we sadly can’t all always go into a forest every day, (we wish!) we can bring greenery into our everyday living spaces. Having the healing colour in your office or home is a great reminder to take a break and reconnect.
Inspired by this theme, our handcrafted spring collection- greenery letter lights brings the outside in. Our “greenery” letter light collection is almost an evolution of our original floral and succulent collections. As you can see in the pics, the greenery is actually spilling over out of the frames, bursting into life. Much like Pantone’s colour of the year, these twinkling letter, heart and ampersand lights bring a bit nature into your everyday normal.
We all love a bit of green in our house – and we know that it’s good for our mood to have it there. However, some of us don’t have the time or the patience (or the skills!) to keep a plant alive… so no worries for those of us without a green thumb, our greenery light up letters are made with synthetic flora that will stay vibrant forever. Nature without the maintenance. Now that is something we can get on board with!
They are battery operated by LED lights and are freestanding. The greenery collection was hand designed with spring and summer weddings in mind, but these letter lights would really make pretty office or living room display too – trust us, we’ve tested them out! At TWB HQ, we love the way the greenery light up heart and the light up ampersand look with our traditional letter lights. Couldn’t you just see the below at an engagement party too?
