Pantone Colour of the Year 2017
We were thrilled to see the Pantone colour of the year for 2017 announcement last week as we are huge fans of all things green and natural! The colour is ‘Greenery – Pantone 15-0343’, and is a “refreshing and revitalising shade, ‘Greenery’ is symbolic of new beginnings”. We love the brightness of this particular shade and used in an interior and combined with lots of lush foliage, you can really bring the garden inside and create a fantastic scheme.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institue described in detail the meaning behind the bold colour choice, and why they chose this particular colour for 2017;
“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 revitalise, Greenery symbolises the re-connection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade, illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors. The fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate. A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.”
We love the Pillowtalk 3 seat sofa in this vibrant greenery inspired velvet, ‘Varese Apple’, by Designers Guild.
