Every year, the Pantone Color Institute (the recognized authority on color) points to a new color as the trend for the year. After months of research and examination of past trends and the possibilities of future trends, the group puts forth the trending color for the year. For 2017, the color is PANTONE Greenery (15-0343), and you’ll be seeing it on everything from vehicles to fashion to décor. Many people like to add the trending color to their everyday lives. If you’d like some ideas about how to bring PANTONE Greenery into your home, speak with a Perfect Fit Window Fashions consultant here in Estero today.
What Influences Colors
Several factors can impact how we see the world and how colors can impact our lives. For example, when the economy is strong, popular color gets rich, deep, and vibrant. When it is weak, we see trends toward light colors and soft/safe colors. If we’re at war, color leaves our homes and becomes safe, soft, and practically nonexistent. Taupe, grays, and whites are war colors. Current events can also play a role. When major events are forecasted, such as the Presidential election, the Olympics, and, yes, even the Star Wars movie, softer and safe colors are what we are drawn to.
What Is PANTONE Greenery?
According to the Pantone Color Institute, Greenery is “nature’s neutral” and “emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions.” Watch this YouTube video to see it in action.
