Pantone is going green in 2017. The foremost experts on color have selected Greenery as their color of the year — a “fresh and zesty yellow-green shade” that evokes feelings of optimism and vitality. “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we year for amid a tumultuous social and political environment,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
Greenery is highly versatile, and can be used boldly or sparingly. Pantone integrated the color into 10 palettes, which range from earth tones to pastels to brights. Here we’ve rounded up five home decor items that will inject energy and vibrancy into your space.
