Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year: Greenery


The artist/designer in me can’t resist reporting Pantone’s Color of the Year every year, and for 2017 that color is Greenery. Or to be more precise, Pantone 15-0343. Hard to believe it’s already been a year since I wrote about the pink/baby blue combo for 2016.

I love this color. It’s the color of health, spring, rebirth, and renewal. It’s fresh and outdoorsy. Granny Smith apples and limes. Aspen in summer. Gardens and house plants. My favorite Calyx perfume. Even Xbox.

And yet I don’t decorate with this color. I wouldn’t buy a car this color. I only own one or two items of clothing this color (but not for lack of trying).

What can I say. It just makes me feel good.
