Pantone Color Institute Color of the Year
This year, the Pantone Color Institute—widely known as the authority on all things color—has selected PANTONE Greenery (15-0343) as the trending color for 2017. Selecting the Color of the Year takes approximately nine months. The staff at PANTONE explores a variety of industries to collect what they refer to as “proof points.” They review the latest from the auto industry, designer runways, and interior decorating showcases. Once they identify the trends, they narrow down the choices. And all of the signs pointed to Greenery. Check out this YouTube video to see it in action!
Using This Year’s Green
Called “fresh and zesty,” Greenery evokes a sense of nature and brings people back to the environment. It pairs with other earthy colors, and helps remind consumers to “take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.” Incorporating this trending color into your home environment is easier than you might think. Use décor or accessories. Or consider changing your window treatments. Hunter Douglas offers many different blinds and shades, in fabrics and colors that are nature-inspired and able to bring the feel of greenery to your home. Here are a few choices:
• Silhouette® Window Shading with Matisse® Quartette® fabric in color A25-508, Painter’s Passion
• Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shade with fabric in color C43-696, Oregano
• Vignette® Modern Roman Shades with Heather fabric in color FZ10-337, Clover Field
• Design Studio™ Roman Shades with Bohemian fabric in color DSRBH765, Pesto
• Design Studio™ Roman Shades with Countryside fabric in color DSRCY724, Parsley
• Lightlines® Aluminum Blinds in color LL1-919, Julep
• Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds with Camille fabric in color 7716147, Thyme
Everyone has different tastes, so certainly, PANTONE Greenery is not for everyone. In fact, if you don’t like it, don’t worry! You don’t have to use it at all. But if you do like it, go right ahead. With so many fabrics, textures and colors to choose from, you can easily bring the soothing color of nature to your home.
