How brave are you with your color choices?
Do you stick with neutrals year after year because you are afraid of committing to something bolder...or do you crave color but just are unsure of what colors are hip and which will look dated.
This blog post will help you understand color trends!
Each year, design and creative industry professionals come together to make trend forecasts about which colors will appeal most to consumers. Throughout the year, research is collected from popular media, trends in art, and even political climates, and this year the color of the year, as determined by the experts at the Pantone Color Institute, is Greenery.

What exactly is the PANTONE Color of the Year?
In case you aren’t already familiar with Pantone or their website, Pantone’s official “Color of the Year” is described as “A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”
The green grass grounds this artwork and
acts as a neutral for the vibrant tones in the peacock.
Peacocks offer an opportunity to add lots of
color to your home with sophistication and grace.
They describe Greenery as a “refreshing and vitalizing shade” of green and a symbol of new beginnings.
Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone’s Executive Director explains that “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the connection we seek with nature, one another, and a larger purpose.”

The best thing about green tones, aside from their sense of renewal, is that they complement almost any environment the way nature does.
Green is considered to be nature’s neutral, while being anything but boring, it is full of vitality and the innate unity of the natural world.
For me, green has always been the color of optimism as each spring brings new beginnings.
