Pantone Colour Of The Year 2017: Greenery
After a much-anticipated wait, colour communications expert Pantone has unveiled its Colour of the Year for 2017, Greenery. A ‘zesty yet refreshing yellow toned green’, the shade is a ‘celebration of new beginnings’. Embodying everything spring related next year’s colour is set to be a symbol of ‘renewal, restoration and revival’. Acting as an antidote to today’s current climate, Greenery is the natural counterpoint to a world dominated by fast moving lifestyles and constant technological updates.
Described by Pantone as ‘nature’s neutral’ the ‘life-affirming’ shade not only illustrates the ‘flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors’ but is also an emblem of the ‘pursuit of personal passions and vitality’. Encouraging people to move offline and indulge themselves in natural beauty, Greenery is a stunning visual reminder to take a moment to pause and oxygenate. Standing out against the stark grey tones found in urban jungles, the tone is an anthem of wellness, pulled to the forefront as a global representation of the healthy living trend. A ‘versatile trans-seasonal shade’, the citrus green lends itself to many colour palettes. Team it with brights, metallics or even Rose Quartz and Serenity, 2016’s Colours of the Year for an interior scheme that will, quite literally, breathe new life into a tired décor.
