I just want to go on record as saying I think having a color of the year is preposterous, but kudos to Pantone for keeping this 15-year-old Color of the Year marketing gimmick alive. Since others might disagree, we’ll play along. Move over Rose Quartz 13-1520 and Serenity 15-3919—the new Pantone color for 2017 is Greenery 15-03-43.
According to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, “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 reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”
