Create a Fresh Look with Greenery
Pantone, the leading colour institute which helps companies to make the most informed decisions about colour for their brand or products, has announced Greenery as the Colour of the Year for 2017. It follows on from the colours Serenity and Rose Quartz in 2016 and Marsala in 2015. Chosen by the team at pantone, Colour of the Year is an expression of a mood and an attitude; a symbolic colour representative of what they see taking place in our global culture.
What is Greenery ?
For those in any business where colour is important, Greenery is a specific colour reference, Pantone 15-0343, which can be described technically with a specific set of RGB variables. In visual terms, it’s a fresh and zesty yellow tinted green, evocative of the early spring days when greens seen in nature are fresh, lush and abundant.
“Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose”
Lietrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute
Greenery is full of life and vitality. Furthermore it’s a transitional shade that works throughout the seasons and with many different colour combinations so perfect if you’re planning on an interior makeover for the new year. Experiment with palettes and try using the colour with existing furnishings to create an exciting new colour scheme.
You don’t have to use the colour at its full brightness. The essence of Greenery can be maintained with softer shades. Keep the look homely and inviting by combining soft greens with warmer beige tones.
Clean Green shades look crisp and fresh teamed with minimal pattern and an off white or soft grey background.
