Explore “Greenery”: Pantone 2017 Color of the Year

Greenery Pantone color of the year 2017

Last year Pantone gave us a world of pastel when they gave us Rose Quartz & Serenity. This year, they give us GREENERY (Pantone 15-0343) - symbolic of new beginnings. Greenery is a yellow-green shade which is fresh and reminds us of spring or renewal. Considered nature’s neutral, this life-affirming shade “emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality” (Pantone). The color is expressive of the cultural mood and a refreshing welcome to the social and political climate we have been living in.

“Greenery burst forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” -Latrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute

Bringing to mind the lushness of the great outdoors, Greenery messages consumers to take a deep breath and be happy. It speaks to our desire to rejuvenate and revitalize. And, while it has surfaced in recent collections such as Michael Kors, and Zac Posen - it is uncertain how consumers will interpret this vibrant shade into their fashion choices. Greenery however, will prove trendy for the architectural world, and in home decor - as it brings the plushness of the outdoors in. As for beauty, if you’re looking to make a statement in a chic way, the gorgeous shade of Greenery is the way to do it!
