Greenery, Pantone‘s 2017 color, came as a surprise after last year’s soft Serenity and Rose Quartz. As Pantone states it, “Greenery is nature’s neutral. 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. A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.”
Pantone says, “Greenery is paired with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels, metallics and even the enduring presence of PANTONE Color of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity. These palettes easily cross over fashion, beauty, product and graphic design applications.”
Here’s how to integrate Greenery to your lifestyle.
2017 will be a bold, bright year! Mix Greenery with other flashy colors for a fun, summery look, or take a darker route and opt with tropical patterns on black. Speaking of prints, they’re everywhere: we love the retro vibe this year’s shade brings to our wardrobe!
If you’re not ready to repaint your kitchen or living room, the easiest way to integrate Greenery to your decor would be to simply add plants to your decor (don’t forget to water them, though!).
If you’re not ready for crazy lips or a bright eyeliner, why not ask for green nails for your next appointment at the beauty salon? The green trend also reminds us to choose beauty and skincare products carefully; look for all-natural, organic products on the ingredient list.
A adding small pieces of furniture, like a chair or coffee table, can add pops of color to your home or office without breaking the bank. These super cute finds make awesome gifts, too!
