Surprised by the announcement of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2017 I must admit taking a second to embrace this bright green color that refuses to obey the rules of winter. It has a life of its own and I can’t help but embrace Greenery (15-0343) with excitement as Pantones Color 2017 and its emphatic reminder to invite nature into our homes.
Described as “refreshing and revitalizing” and “symbolic of new beginnings,” this Color of the Year 2017 “symbolizes the re-connection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose” according to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
I LOVE greens and with this announcement I immediately began trying to figure out how this tangy bright yellow-green color would relate with some of the deeper and medium hues that are loved by so many. Take a look at the color pairings below, find your home color scheme and see how well Pantone Greenery pairs up with your existing color plan.
Still more Pantone Greenery color pairings entitled Grand Canyon, Forest Floor, Analogous, Moody Blooms, Deep Rooted and Calm It Down are available to choose from.
