The Pantone color of the year for 2017: Greenery Pantone 15-0343.
“Greenery, a refreshing and revitalizing shade, symbolizes new beginnings. It is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew,” said Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
The hue is invigorating, fortifying and brings the great outdoors in. This life-affirming shade speaks of life (rebirth, regrowth and reinvention), vitality and our need to be part of our environment and the world. It is minimalistic and neutral in nature, yet lasting by choice.
