Well folks, the colour gods have spoken, this week Pantone released their colour of the year for 2017 and what a rejuvenating and refreshing colour it is! Pantone has named the 2017 colour of the year “Greenery”. This bright and zesty pop of green mixes shades of yellow and green to evoke the beginning of springs season when nature’s greens come alive. According to Pantone this new colour is “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.”
Looking back on Pantone’s 2016 colour(s) of the year; Rose Quartz (a soft pink) and Serenity (a muted periwinkle blue), Greenery is definitely a huge leap from the two pastel colours we saw in charge and in my eyes I think this leap is a great way to kick off the new year.
We’ve already seen pops of Pantone’s 2017 colour of the year in the Spring 2017 runway shows but how will it work its way into the 2017 wedding industry? It is no secret that greens are a staple colour that many couples and planners incorporate into their wedding palette but I do believe we will be seeing more of this fresh, bright green whether it be incorporated into the florals, tabletop accents (goblets, dinnerware) or into the stationary aspect such as the save-the-date or invitation suite. This colour is sure to be a hit come the Spring 2017 wedding season and I’d love to hear your thoughts!
