2017 Colour of the Year is Greenery

We thought it could not get any better, but it’s time to wave goodbye to 2016’s Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue shades. As the Gods of Colour have spoken and “Greenery” is the Pantone Colour of 2017. The colour, named Greenery, is described by Pantone as a tangy yellow-green often seen in foliage. Bringing forth a refreshing take, Greenery is a tangy yellow-green that speaks to our need to explore, experiment and reinvent. Illustrative of flourishing foliage, the fertile attributes of Greenery signals one to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

The colour “greenery,” similar to chartreuse, is well represented in the first buds and grass blades of new spring, but it also plays out in history at times of major cultural shifts, including the suffrage movement and flapper era of the 1920s and the war and racial justice protest movements and psychedelia of the ’60s and ’70s.

In addition to the emerging recycle-and-share economies, we have green rooftops, green spaces and indoor vertical farming. In home decor, there’s a trend to connect with the elements outside through open spaces and vast windows, and a desire to bring nature inside through forestry murals and living moss walls.

This uplifting, organic and energizing shade symbolises nature, new beginnings and spring.  We could not be more excited!

Greenery is a refreshing and revitalizing lime green shade that is symbolic of new beginnings and evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. It is a very versatile colour that works for all seasons and colour combinations. Brides and wedding planners can be playful by adding Greenery to your colour palette. This fresh shade can work alongside metallics, pastels, deep hues, brights and neutrals in many different ways.
