Each year Pantone–recognized as the global leader and authority on color for the design industries—releases a color to celebrate that year. 2017 is marked by PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery. It’s a vibrant, sassy yellow-green shade that reminds of the first days of spring when nature is filled with greens that re-awaken, restore and renew us. According to Pantone this color is “a life-affirming shade, and is emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.”
Open spaces in interior and exterior design and floor-to-ceiling windows allow the green outdoors to become part of a room’s backdrop and ambiance. Adding greenery through living walls, terrariums, botanically-themed wallpaper, paint, accent furniture and decor provides respite and breathing space. A Greenery-painted wall or piece of furniture delivers a pop of color, with the added benefit of creating the illusion of nature indoors. Bringing the outside in, the shade –like the plant life it represents–can improve self-esteem, reduce anxiety and heighten awareness of one’s surroundings.
