Using Pantone's Color of the Year, Greenery, in Your Home
As it does every year around this time, the Pantone Color Institute has announced its Color of the Year for 2017 – Greenery. “There’s a Japanese concept called ‘forest bathing,’ which says that when you are feeling stressed, one of the best things to do is go walk in the forest,” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute said. “But if you can’t do that, what can you do? Bring green into your environment. Put in on your body, or in your house or near your desk. That symbolic message is very important.” If it's a hue you'd like to use in your home, check out our product picks to help you incorporate it in a variety of ways.
From Pantone's 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."
