Looking for what’s hot in 2017? Each year, design and color lovers (like us) get a hint of what’s to come in the annual announcement of the PANTONE® Color of the Year. Time to check out the Color of the Year for 2017. This year’s selection from PANTONE® is – Greenery.

A fresh green shade that PANTONE® is billing as “nature’s neutral”, this versatile pick will pair well with a variety of palettes from neutrals and deep jewel tones to pastels (like last year’s Color of the Year entries Rose Quartz and Serenity). But what inspired the color giant to go green this year?

According to their announcement, it’s a reflection of our collective craving to escape the pressures of our modern, technologically infused lives by immersing ourselves in the beauty and serenity of the natural world. In their words, “Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.”  Life-affirming, invigorating and restorative, green propels us ahead to find inspiration in our daily lives and personal passions.

Seems like the perfect new beginning for a new year. Here’s to a 2017 filled with Greenery!
