Color of the Year 2017: Decorating with Greenery

Pantone, the authority on color, has just announced Color of the Year 2017. Have you heard? The bold selection is in: Greenery! The yellow-green shade is rejuvenating, revitalizing, and invigorating–which is great after a long year. Imagine your toes in fresh grass, a crisp green apple in hand, the smell of springtime all around; this is what Greenery is about–new beginnings, and taking time to enjoy Earth’s beauty. Described by Pantone as “nature’s neutral,” Greenery reconnects us with nature and enables us to be positive. Are you ready to decorate with Greenery? Take a look at some ideas for incorporating Color of the Year 2017 into your home design.

“Greenery bursts 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.”

~ Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
