Hello 'Greenery': Pantone Colour Of The Year: 2017

December is the month of traditions.

One event that all designers have noted in their diary is the announcement of Pantone Colour of the Year.

It's always a challenge to forecast what they will choose but one thing is sure: we will see the colour trend prediction popping up everywhere from fashion and home décor to nail varnish and kitchen appliances.

For 2016, the big surprise was that Pantone chose not one but two colours of the year. Rose Quartz and Serenity was the pale pastel colour-combination that complement each other naturally.

The trend for blush tones was set and we have seen these colours appearing everywhere. 

Designers have kept a close watch for months on which direction the Pantone colour trend is going for 2017. In previous years, the Pantone Color Institute often made a bold choice (we're thinking about Radiant Orchid in 2014 or Tangerine Orange in 2012).  

The colour trend for 2017: Greenery. It is a vibrant color that brings a sense of spring.

Green is the shade of nature. It's the start of something new.

It is fresh and positive and gives a feeling of health.

This particular green is an unusual colour: a combination of yellow and blue, or warmth and a certain coolness’, said Pantone’s executive director Leatrice Eiseman in her press release. “Greenery symbolises the re-connection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.

We already saw lots of plants and greenery popping up in home décor in recent years, and now the colour of the year will reflect the trend of bringing the outside inside.
