Green – the dominant color in nature, the soothing hue symbolizing harmony and peace. Pantone’s color of the year, greenery, is weirdly perfect for 2017. The Pantone Color Institute has also made a crossover between the color Greenery as a symbol of regard for the environment.
The New York Times published a quote by Leatrice Eiseman, executive director at the Pantone Color Institute:
“We know what kind of world we are living in: one that is very stressful and very tense. This is the color of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature. It speaks to what we call the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew. Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground. It is something life affirming to look forward to.”
Greenery is not the typical green shade, it’s a yellow-based color that is more warm, with a touch of freshness. That’s exactly what we need in 2017 – boldness, freshness and optimism.
We put together a collection of images in celebration of the color of the year. Go ahead, have a look and stay inspired!
