Pantone’s Color of the Year 2017 Design Inspiration

It’s here, the moment the design world has been waiting for: the announcement of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2017! In case you missed the news, the official color of 2017 is “Greenery,” a refreshing and revitalizing shade of neutral green.


Inspired by the wonderful, natural world around us, Greenery is a yellow-green shade that’s both calming and invigorating to look at.

“Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

Pantone’s Color of the Year 2017 is a nice reminder to slow down, look around, and discover the beauty that surrounds us every single day. Not only does it stand well on its own, but it also pairs nicely with a wide variety of color schemes to satisfy any palette you’re looking for.
