Each year the Pantone Color Institute releases their color of the year.  This inspires so many things - fashion, decor, florals, stationary, clothing, paint - so many things!  

Pantone released their color of the year: greenery.  When I first heard that the color of 2017 was greenery, I pictured a deep greenish blue hue, similar to boxwood.  However, I was mistaken.  It's more of a yellowish green!  As pantone puts it:

"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 and reinvigorate."

I like the idea of capturing the first bits of spring, however there are a few key words that stand out to me:

  • revive
  • restore
  • renew
  • flourishing

These are all great descriptive words that also describe what a new year can bring.  This color represents a fresh start and new beginning.  This color is so inspiring to me because of the meaning behind it!  Please enjoy my greenery look book!
