Color of the Year 2017
Yes, there really is an expert out there that selects a color of the year. That expert is not one individual but actually a group of people at the Pantone Color Institute and the color for 2017 is ”Greenery”, Pantone 15-0343.
Each year the folks at Pantone comb the world looking for color influences in art, entertainment and fashion. Their color of the year influences all industries, including fashion, home design and even packaging. This year’s Greenery is described a “nature’s neutral” and was selected as a symbol of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality; a life-affirming shade.
“Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose”, says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute.
For use in the painting industry, there are a lot of other colors that would work well with Greenery. Pantone notes that it can be paired with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels and metallics.
