Drum roll please!!
The Pantone Color Institute has declared GREENERY as THE COLOR of 2017!
Beginning in the year 2000, The Pantone Color Institute names a particular color “Color of the Year”. This color then becomes the “it” color of that particular year. From, clothes, to jewelry, to home furnishings, to makeup, marketing, and more.
Since it’s inception, there have been all kinds of colors. Some familiar names like True Red, Blue Turquoise, Emerald, and Rose Quartz. And, some not so familiar names like Tigerlilly, Mimosa, and Serenity to name a few.
This year Greenery has won top honors and 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.”
“A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. 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.”
I don’t know about you, but I think this color is FAB-U-LOUS and SIMPLY HAPPY! I am ready to revive, refresh, and renew! And this gorgeous, green color inspired by nature is beckoning us to do just that!
How do you plan to incorporate some “greenery” in your life? Maybe with throw pillows, a fun nail polish, eyeshadow, or gorgeous green dress? Or are you more adventurous and willing to try a new paint color for a room in your home? Perhaps a new sofa?
I absolutely love succulents and they always “shine” in bright white pots.
Whatever you do, make sure and get some “Greenery” in your life this year!
Here are some images to inspire you!
