Color of the Year 2017

Pantone has released its 2017 Color of the Year – what it describes as “a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”

The coming year’s color is a zippy, upbeat green appropriately named “Greenery”.  Pantone calls it “nature’s neutral” and “fresh, calming and indicative of new beginnings” – and I have to agree!

Green is a really easy color to work with – it looks great with a variety of colors (purple is my favorite!!!) and stands out nicely against neutrals like cream, gray, brown or beige.   It is also  gender-neutral, and I find people don’t have a strong negative reaction to it in a color palette.  When I’m finishing a room and it’s feeling like it’s missing something….usually I add a little green and that does the trick!!!

Here’s a roundup of my favorite green things right now:
