Pantone’s Color of the Year

Welcome to March.  It is the month that we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and welcome Spring.  Do you decorate with gorgeous green accents?  There are lots of easy ways to bring a bit o’ luck into your home.

Ironically, a shade of green is Pantone’s Color of the Year.  A vibrant shade of yellow-green, reminiscent of chartreuse and peridot with the slightest hint of mint. It is so much more than lime green. There are millions of possibilities this color lends when used sparingly, especially with other shades of green in the darker, richer end of the spectrum. This color inspires one to be with nature continuously, not just on a tropical vacation.


The details on Greenery from Pantone…

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. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

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.

Here are some green pieces that can Creatively Transform your home.
