Pantone chose Greenery as the color of the year for 2017. Why did they chose this yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring? Maybe because it inspires hope, nature and new beginnings.
“We know what kind of world we are living in: one that is very stressful and very tense,“ said Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “This is the color of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature. It speaks to what we call the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew. Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground. It is something life affirming to look forward to.”
“There’s a growing desire to reconnect with Nature and what is real, and find ways to disconnect from technology. We need a break. We need to stop and breathe,” Laurie Pressman, the Pantone Color Institute’s vice president, told Forbes. “(Greenery) is about unity and community—connecting to oneself and others and a higher purpose, Nature.”
Use this color in your home and your wardrobe matching it up with other colors to get a clean, perky fresh look.
Use your imagination and have fun with it!
