Whilst it’s an odd name for a colour — without even seeing it — you can imagine exactly what shade it is from those two words.
I was given a lovely terrarium a few years ago. I’d intended to fill it with tiny plants — succulents or cacti — but I ended up cramming it with fairy lights and that’s, sadly, where the story ended.
This post has reminded me that I must resurrect it and carry out my initial plan. The thought of a tiny, indoor greenhouse, containing miniature plants, is very pleasing.
And whilst I do love fairy lights (all year round), a little bit of extra greenery — to see me through the greyness of winter — might be just what the doctor ordered.
They almost cover the whole spectrum of greens; from yellow-tinged acid to deepest forest and everything in between.
You’d think I’d struggle to find products that reflect such specific hues but, amazingly, there are always so many variants of the colour green available — especially for the home.
I think we humans like to feel at one with nature; and despite living in towns and cities we can still fill our spaces with verdant toned goodness.
Here are my current favourite picks in Pantone Terrarium Moss.

I love this gentle green, it reminds me of being on the Chase where I grew up. There are a myriad of greens there and this shade seems to reflect all of them so beautifully.
I took this pic of the boys there last year.
I can see Terrarium Moss reflected all around, in this image.
To see more pictures — and read about our adventures there — have a read of this post from November last year.
I meant to say, when I began this post, that this is one of the colours from Pantone’s 2019 colour predictions.
As we’re so very nearly at an end of 2018, with just two more months until we greet the new year, I thought I’d look forward to the spring and drum up a bit of excitement for the new colours that we can expect to see on the catwalk and high-street next year.
So many hot bright colours! And some lovely earthy neutrals too. I can’t wait!
