Pantone Colour of the Year 2017

The start of a new year means a new direction in colour, and the global organisation that sets the colour tone each year has released its 2017 shade.

The 2017 PANTONE Colour of the Year is Greenery: a refreshing and revitalising shade that is symbolic of new beginnings. After last year’s muted, pastel shades, it’s a nice change to see a vivid, bold and lively colour make an entrance.

In Pantone’s own words,

“it’s a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.”

“The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.”

Greenery can be paired with neutrals, brights, gem tones, pastels, metallics and even the PANTONE Colour of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity.
