The Magnificent Greenery

Yes, in 2017 Green(ery) will be pulled to the forefront. According to Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute:

”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.”

We could not put it better.

This lively yellow-green shade brings about all the freshness and juice of the emerging spring. It is a beautiful symbol, especially in the days of global pollution and detachment from nature. Greenery has not only a chance to adorn and invigorate the material world that we create, it has a unique opportunity to raise awareness of the damage caused to the natural environment which is our true home. And to bring us closer to our planet and one another.
