Last year we traced down many examples of green walls on the blog and since that post had such a huge success being repined over 9K times, we thought it was about time to track back some evidence on Instagram and witness its current application. Green being a favorite color has already started a few years ago and has seen much evolution ever since, for example with the Botanical , Jungle , Succulent and Tropicana trends, reaching it’s peak with ‚Greenery’ being the Pantone Color of the Year in 2017. With this in mind, we can not only grasp the idea of how popular green walls are, we are taking a step forward, showing you true evidence in real homes.
Some time ago we started a new series here on Eclectic Trends: it is all about trends that we have shown on the blog before and that we are now tracking back on Instagram . This series shows that Instagram is one of the most important platforms when it comes to finding and tracking back trend evidence and showing how widely spread trends are within all creative disciplines, reaching diverse consumer groups and having a real influence on the interior world also.
Even though the varieties in colors may differ in their hue or lightness, they show a large selection of greens and the prove that we love to surround ourselves with this vivid color. Here you can spot all the different shades of green, ranging from sea-green, artichoke, forest-moss, deep tones green-greys, emerald green and even greens with a blue-ish undertones.

On the Instagram account of Pantone , fashion designer Christian Siriano once said, when he was interviewed about his love for green: ‚My love of any green color comes from the idea of bringing the outdoors inside‘ – a very fundamental need so many of us seem to have and that unites us in the love for green color. Or maybe it is the opposite, dispelling the myth of the botanical relevance and focusing on the elementary effects of it’s symbolism: bringing harmony and balance to our homes in sometimes challenging times. We think, the truth for the success lies somewhere in-between.
