Greenery - Pantone Colour of the Year for 2017

Every year we feature Pantone's Colour of the Year, for 2017 Pantone selected Greenery as its Colour of the Year.


Pantone's colour of the year - greenery - symbolises a desire to rejuvenate and revitalise; a need to be at one with nature and each other. A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Fresh and zesty, greenery is a shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s revives and renews and is illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, making you want to take a deep, soothing breath. Greenery is Mother Nature's neutral palette. Greenery is a versatile all-season colour that lends itself to many combinations.

As we become immersed in modern life, the greater our innate craving to immerse ourselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.
