The color gurus at Pantone came up with a springtime-fresh selection for color of 2017—15-0343, aka Greenery. A yellow-green hue that “evokes the first days of spring,” the color is meant to bring us back to nature, back to Mother Earth, due in large part to the strife and civil unrest happening abroad and here at home.
“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."
While this color isn’t for everyone, especially in these antiseptic po-mo times, Curbed SF put together a list of seven spaces that Pantone would appreciate, with a little help from Estately.
