Using Pantone's Color of the Year, Greenery, in the Nursery

Lullaby 12/16/2016

After 9 months of seeking out trends around the world, the Pantone Color Institute has announced its pick for 2017's Color of the Year: Greenery. “This is the color of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature,"said Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "It speaks to what we call the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew. Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground. It is something life affirming to look forward to.” Sounds perfect for the nursery, right? Eiseman refers to it as "nature's neutral," so it's a great choice for a baby boy or girl. Check out our product picks for using Pantone's Color of the Year, Greenery, in the nursery.



From the Pantone website:

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.
