Pantone announces 2017’s Colour of the Year

Pantone announces 2017’s Colour of the Year

Are you wanting to add a pop of colour to your décor but are unsure what colour to go for? Take some inspiration from the experts: Pantone, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, recently announced PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery as the Pantone Color of the Year selection for 2017.

Greenery is described as 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 individuals to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Here, Pantone shares some suggestions on how to use Greenery in the home:

  • Open spaces in interior and exterior design and floor-to-ceiling windows allow the green outdoors to become part of a room’s backdrop and ambiance. Adding Greenery through living walls, terrariums, botanically-themed wallpaper, paint, accent furniture and decor provides respite and breathing space. A Greenery-painted wall or piece of furniture delivers a pop of color, with the added benefit of creating the illusion of nature indoors.
  • Bringing the outside in, the shade - like the plant life it represents - can improve self-esteem, reduce anxiety and heighten awareness of one’s surroundings.
  • Holistic, harmonious living is linked to the power of plants. Invigorating Greenery is prominent in many health food trends today, including matcha, seaweed and avocado, while the growth of urban agriculture and indoor vertical farms brings the essence of Greenery to unexpected places. On the table, Greenery plates and chargers provide an appetizing backdrop for food – making dishes pop and appear fresh.
  • Because of green’s prevalence in nature, it maintains a perception of being inherently good for you and organic.
