Toward the end of 2016, color experts began releasing their predictions for the trends of 2017, and one of those was a resurgence of interest in green. Pantone’s color report for spring 2017 already included a vibrant green called Lush Meadow, and now they’ve unveiled their eagerly-awaited Color of the Year: Greenery (15-0343).
Greenery is a bright yellow-green, reminiscent of tropical foliage, fresh fruit, and newly mown grass. It’s a refreshing, optimistic color, intended to set the viewer thinking about new beginnings and the joys of the great outdoors. When most of us spend our time in built environments and engaging with technology, Greenery is a reminder to reconnect with what’s real.
Pantone describes Greenery as “nature’s neutral”, a shade that is suitable for any season or application yet retains its distinctiveness. Like most greens, it has a life-affirming emotional effect and, when used inside the home, links the interior with the natural world outside. Some products that we have available in this color are the Baloo Chair and Ottoman and the Glamour Chair Get inspired by Greenery at pantone.com.
