Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year is Greenery, but there’s more than one way to fill your house with plants… Here’s how we’re embracing the trend this month.
Chloe Hall Illustration
Chloe Hall is a freelance illustrator and pattern designer. Inspired by nature and plants, she enjoys creating loose-line work and watercolour illustrations.
Her final prints are often based on the first illustrations she sketches, rather than being overdeveloped, ‘perfect’ designs. Chloe wants her work to feel fresh, so the people that buy it feel as though they’ve brought a little bit of the outdoors in.
Having always lived on a canal boat, she is constantly surrounded by nature. Chloe thinks spending time outside, walking and being surrounded by greenery and nature is so important, not just for our wellbeing, but for helping us to focus, and for sharpening our thinking and creativity, too.
