Pantone Color of 2017 – Greenery

Saints be praised! The Pantone color of 2017 has been released! And unlike other years we’re actually excited about this one. Last year’s baby hues of blue and pink definitely left us wanting, but the vibrant color they’ve picked for this year has us feeling giddy! May we introduce to you…Greenery.

pantone color of 2017

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.    – Pantone.com

Greenery is a versatile color, although you might not think it at first. Pair this zesty color with neutrals like crisp whites or muted beiges to make it the center of attention. Keep your palette bright and cheery with other bold colors like orange and coral. Make your home classy and modern by accessorizing with gold and silver metallics.
