Greenery is the colour of 2017

Pantone have just announced their colour of the year and, like us, everyone is loving the greenery. The freshness of green is undeniable… the colour of spring and renewal, its the most balanced colour on the spectrum created from cold sea blue to warm sun yellow.  It’s the colour of harmony and  balance. The fresh start that many of us are looking forward to after the crazy year that 2016 has been. “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.” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.
