Pantone Color of the Year 2017: Greenery!

It’s that time of year again…time for the new Pantone Color of the Year selection! Last year we embraced the calming, soothing tones of Serenity and Rose Quartz. This year, Pantone has chosen a refreshing shade to help breathe hope into our lives. Here’s a bit about 2017’s Color of the Year: Greenery!

2017 Pantone Color of the Year: GreeneryGreenery (Pantone 15-0343) is a fresh, zesty shade of yellow-green that evokes the wonderful feeling of the first day of spring. This refreshing time of year is when we witness some of nature’s greatest wonders as greens revive, renew, and restore.

Flourishing foliage and the lush outdoors are at the heart of this shade. Simply put, green is nature’s neutral. It symbolizes new beginnings and encourages people to take a deep breath, oxygenate, and reinvigorate.

Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute said of the color,

“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.”
