Greenery Named Pantone of 2017


With 2016 coming to a close, we want to start the new year feeling revitalized and inspired. What better way than getting inspired by the Pantone Color Institute for the Pantone of the Year. 2017's choice is a refreshing and revitalizing shade that is symbolic of new beginnings, exactly what we need!

Greenery has been announced as 2017 PANTONE® Color of the Year. “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for amid a complex social and political landscape. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate, revitalize and unite, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” In addition to connecting with nature, preservation of the environment is of utmost importance to a growing number of people. Choosing such an natural color indicates the growing concern and attention to the environment in the coming years.

Natural greenery has frequently been an element in events, from living greenery walls and step & repeats to leaf place cards. With this Pantone announcement we anticipate seeing more natural elements incorporated in events, both in the use of Pantone 15-0343 and with green initiatives to help preserve our earth.

Here’s to a rejuvenated 2017!
