It’s Only Natural: “Greenery” is Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year
Describing a human desire to connect more with nature as our submersion in modern life grows deeper, Pantone announced “Greenery” as its Color of the Year. The “fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring” is seen as a hopeful, calming response to tumultuous world events. It’s also a reminder to unplug from our devices and rediscover the life around us.
“Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute®.
Greenery can be understood as “nature’s neutral,” according to Pantone. It’s a color that is always with us, even if on the periphery, and it’s now shifting to a more central, unifying role. An emphasis on Greenery is expressed in all areas of lifestyle design from urban planning to architecture.
Pantone LLC is the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems and leading technology for the selection and accurate communication of color across a variety of industries.
