Pantone’s 2017 Color Of The Year: “Greenery”

Pantone Color of the Year: Greenery 15-0343

Greenery 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.

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.

This timeless neutral is modern, classic and a beautiful balance of warm and cool. Over the years, grey has certainly been a popular color, but recently people have wanted natural and organic influences in their colors. Poised Taupe combines earthen brown with conservative grey and the result is a weathered, woodsy and complex neutral that celebrates the imperfections and authenticity of a well-lived life. Poised Taupe displays the transition from the monochrome grey of the past 5 years to a more complex and taupe brown. This color is certainly an exclusive and trendsetting color of 2017.

Shadow has been proven to be a great color to complement other classic colors.

This year has brought a lot of new colors to the industry; however, these three have proven to be the most popular of all. Don’t waste any more time, the summertime is perfect for repainting your home and bringing it up to speed with the current trends!
