Bid farewell to 2016 and to Rose Quartz blended with Serenity as the star of the show. Go green as 2017 welcomes the new Pantone Color of the Year, Greenery 15-0343. Greenery is nature’s neutral. A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.
Every year the Pantone Color Institute nominates a Color of the Year, forecasting which specific hue designers and consumers will likely be using, wearing, and buying for the following year. The 2017 COTY is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.
Here’s what Pantone has to say about the 2017 COTY:
“Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”
Greenery gives you the opportunity to blur the lines where inside meets outdoors — whether it’s a space in your kitchen, office or any room that needs a spot of color and a little added green life. Here are a few fabulous ways to make the introduction of this color duo to your Signature home:
