The Pantone Color Institute selected Greenery, a lush and vibrant yellow-green, to be the color of the year for 2017.
Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, wrote:
“Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political climate. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”
2016 quickly received a notorious reputation for being a disastrous year, frequently represented in our pop culture as shown above. Eiseman mentioned that the shade Greenery was selected to reassure everyone after a turbulent year and provide some hope. We, at Seattle Staged to Sell, are excited about this energetic color to represent the new year.
Greenery is a happy and heartening shade that makes a statement when paired with other colors. It will dominate the catwalks this coming year, and will also influence interior design in 2017. In 2016, we loved designing with similar green shades, and we will definitely continue to incorporate the hue into our 2017 stages. It simply energizes any room.
Here are some of our favorite staging looks we designed in 2016 using the 2017 palette:
Greenery represents fresh growth and new beginnings. As you recharge in 2017, energize your wardrobe and home with this vibrant color.
