Earlier this week, Pantone released their Colour Of The Year for 2017 – a striking yellow green colour called Greenery.
I agree, I like it because it is much fresher than the olive greens we have seen a lot of in 2016.
For the first time ever, Pantone chose two colours for 2016 and both were muted tones in response to the hectic and turbulent world we find ourselves in today.
This colour feels much more optimistic.
Pantone said “Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate. Greenery is nature’s neutral.”
To use this kind of colour in paint, I would recommend a Dulux colour called Savoy (S21G7). A solid green, similar to Greenery that would look striking as an accent colour with a white or grey room.
It is an ideal accent colour especially as we head into Summer and Autumn.
Is it a colour that we could use in Gippsland? Absolutely. We live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country surrounded by natural beauty, an inland lake system, gorgeous national parks and the gateway to the high country and alps.
Bring the outdoors in with Dulux Savoy in accent walls, painted furniture, accessories or rugs and embrace 2017 and its optimistic outlook. I know I will. Thanks Pantone.
