12 Ways With Pantone's Colour of the Year

Pantone Says Greenery Is The New Black

09 Jan 2017 By Emma-Charlotte Bangay
Pantone Colour of The Year is named annually as a shade chosen to symbolize what we see taking place in our global culture. Therefore, the Pantone Colour of the Year serves as a tonal expression of a mood and an attitude of today.
Fittingly, Pantone Colour of the year for 2017 is truly the perfect mesh of mother nature meets modern life; Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade flush with the essence of nature and life, wellbeing, and wanderlust that is set to revive interiors across the globe, truly bringing the outdoors, in.
Reminiscent of foliage and lush gardens, Pantone ‘greenery’ is the fingerprint of the great outdoors and the embodiment of the wellness movement – and green juice brigade – that is so popular. It truly signals that consumers are taking a huge gulp of air and oxygenating and invigorating their design choices.
“Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalise, greenery symbolises the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.
“Greenery truly is nature’s neutral and – according to the Pantone Color Institute – it’s popularity symbolises the great craving people today have to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world.
Urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices are all turning over a new leaf globally with a constant presence of this crisp tone evident in all elements of design and living.
According to Pantone, greenery is also a life-affirming shade, emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.
