A Color of Elegance - Greenery, Pantone's Color of the Year 2017

They call it “A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony."  It is Green,  the color of growth, the color of spring, the color of renewal and rebirth. An emotionally positive color, it renews and restores depleted energy, so it comes as no surprise that Pantone, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announced Greenery [15-0343] as the Color of the Year for 2017.  

"Greenery, a life-affirming color, is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. It symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.  Evocative of foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, Greenery reminds us to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate."

The word green comes from the Old English word green, which like the German word grün has the same root as the words grass and grow.

Green had a positive connotation throughout history. In ancient Egypt it was the symbol of regeneration and rebirth. The hieroglyph for green represented a growing papyrus sprout, showing the close connection between green, vegetation, vigor and growth. In wall paintings, the ruler of the underworld, Osiris, was typically portrayed with a green face, because green was the symbol of good health and rebirth. Green also symbolized the sea, which was called the "Very Green”.

Wether used in architecture, interior décor, fashion, food, travel, or any other design form, green is an outlet for all of these fresh beginnings. The color green is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of well-being. This is why there is so much of this relaxing color on the earth, and this is why we need to keep it that way…
