Happy Spring! Learn about Greenery- the Color of the Year.

 

Green, green, and more green. We all scream for green! Or maybe just me {LOL}.

My favorite color is green, so when I found out the Pantone 2017 color of the year was Greenery, of course I was super excited! Now that it's May and the sun is shining, we are about to see it everywhere! 

Have you ever wondered how or why the Pantone color is chosen? "The Color of the Year selection process requires thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone's color experts at the Pantone Color Institute comb the world looking for new color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles and socio-economic conditions... For 17 years, Pantone's Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings and industrial design,  as well as product packaging and graphic design."

In the beauty world Pantone describes it as, "the ultimate personal display of boldness and vitality, greenery is deployed as a chic confident punch of color for hair, lips, eyes and nails. A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude."

When I think of green, it reminds me of Spring and what's to come for the days ahead. Spring clothing, flip flops, baseball, planting in the garden, and my favorite: camping season! I hope you enjoy this years color, Greenery, as much as I do!!! Xoxo

"A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. 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.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves 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 constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront - it is an omnipresent hue around the world.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality."
