Why Greenery has been chosen for 2017? Which colours can be combined with it? Check out colour combinations and the idea behind Pantone’s choice.
At the end of every year, Pantone chooses the colour of the approaching new year. You might be aware of the one chosen for 2017 and already planning how to use it.
Greenery (PANTONE 15-0343) is a fresh shade combining greens and yellows, suggesting revival, restoration and renewal. It is a symbol of a new beginning.
The colour for 2017 has not been chosen by accident. The choice is rooted in people’s desire for reconnection with nature and rejuvenation.
Communities from all around the world, the inhabitants of urban spaces, are trying to work together with organizations and their governments to achieve healthier urban environment by installing green gardens in most polluted parts of their cities.
Greenery is a response to this desire of healthier, fresher way of live, where you can take a deep breath and enjoy the space around you.
