So the color forecasters at Pantone Color Institute have picked Greenery as the Color of the Year for 2017 – and honestly I’m loving it! 2016 has been quite a tumultuous year from a global point of view. It’s been a year of social and political upheaval, including the personal battles, which left a lot of us feeling defeated and disappointed.
In my opinion, Greenery is exactly what we need at this hour – a color that symbolizes life, prosperity and rejuvenation!
While the Pantone Color of the Year 2016, Serenity and Rose Quartz, represented “harmony in a chaotic world”, and Marsala, the color of the year before that was simply bold. Greenery, on the flipside, is a life-affirming shade indeed!
It is soothing to the eyes, yet it has a profound after-effect. Moreover, Greenery symbolizes our connection with nature! It’s a lively and fresh color and holds different meanings for different people – and that’s just amazing!
Frankly speaking, I’m quite fascinated with this shade and with it, we all have taken the first step towards positivity that we hope to seek in the coming year.
