Pantone announce the colour of the year for 2017

For over 50 years Pantone have been the world-renowned authority on all things colour and every December they announce the highly anticipated Colour of the Year winner.

Choosing the Colour of the Year is no easy feat; Pantone scrutinise events, trends, and influences to help them decide the colour that best reflects our global culture.

This year Greenery, or Pantone 15-0343 has been chosen as the it colour for 2017. The refreshing, revitalising shade is meant to reflect new beginnings and a unity with the natural world.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute says in a recent statement, “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment”.

With this need for a stronger connection between one another and to the environment in mind Pantone have created colour pairings with a natural palette – think neutrals, deep shades and metallics.

So get inspired for 2017 and fill your home with plants, choose natural materials and metallic finishes and use Greenery as an accent throughout your colour schemes.
