A Nod to the Color of the Year: Greenery

Posted by in Designer Curated, On Trend |

Pantone recently announced their 2017 Color of the Year: 15-0343, otherwise known as Greenery. A welcome color of optimism in our chaotic times, this color is certainly symbolic of spring and new beginnings. While many shades of green are popular today, this hue is a yellow-based green taken straight from nature. According to Pantone’s website:

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.”
