Why Pantone’s selected Greenery as the colour of the year 2017?
In our own words, Pantone defines colour greenery as a bright new beginning, which is both refreshing and revitalising.
“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” Pantone
Why in our opinion Greenery is the colour of the year 2017?
Greenery reflects the organic trend that the word is experiencing towards healthier ways of living, healthy eating, design, environment and climate change.

Greenery is a colour that is vibrant and we see it as a great way of expressing any design as is a colour that represents the look of improvement and a better self.
Greenery colour applied to architecture and design
As architects and designers, we recommend you use Greenery introducing green walls in your design. Great areas to use green walls are reception, waiting areas and break out spaces within the office space. Most part of the clients of the company you are designing for will walk through those areas and it will showcase the vibrancy of the company’s values and culture. If what you are designing is a restaurant, you can use a green wall as a feature wall to reflect the freshness of the food. You could also apply this colour to any design selecting this it for your furniture to highlight a specific area. You could pick this colour to paint the metal frame of your stools or the wood legs of a lounge chair.
