Bringing the Color of the Year 2017 Into Your HomeDecember 27, 2016
When a new trend appears, when a new color is announced, how does it make you feel? The Pantone Institute’s Color of the Year 2017 was announced just days ago. Full of the rejuvenation of springtime, Greenery has leapt onto the fashion scene–soon to be headed into home decor. Following the calming shades of 2016’s rose quartz and serenity, Greenery might seem like a bit of a shock. Once you adjust, we’d love to show you ways to embrace this exciting shade and make it your own. After all, the intention behind Greenery as Color of the Year 2017 was thoughtful and promising…
Where Did It Come From…?
“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.” ~ Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
