Meant to lớn revitalize & refresh, the coming year"s official color has already been spotted in interior design, on fashion runways and even covering luxury cars.

Incidentally, that"s exactly what the 2017 Color of the Year represents: refreshment, rejuvenation và rebirth, according lớn Leatrice Eiseman, executive sầu director of the Pantone Color Institute. This year"s youthful hue is also grounded enough lớn be neutral against the many other storied shades we have a history of loving.

What color could possibly pull all of it off? It"s called Greenery.

"This shade of green is different from what we"ve ever done as color of the year before," says Eiseman. "We love that feeling of newness, of realigning yourself and revitalizing yourself. A really important aspect is that the color has vibrancy và a little bit of brightness."

Pantone has chosen greens in the past for màu sắc of the Year, but never one as bright as Greenery, which is meant to lớn evoke thoughts of flourishing foliage and, in turn, fresh beginnings. In 2013, the màu sắc of the Year was Emerald, và in 2010, the green-xanh Turquoise, but both hues were darker and more subdued than this year"s color of choice.

"The person who would adapt this color is the person who might be thinking, I need some change, something new và something fresh," says Eiseman.""Rejuvenate," "revitalize" & "reassurance" are all the things we look for in a very complex social và political environment."

Despite its yellow-green brightness, however, Greenery serves as an unexpected universal base for a plethora of other colors.

"There"s an understanding, now, that you can use green as a neutral color, just as mother nature does," says Eiseman. "With any flower that pops out of the earth, you never say, "Oh, that can"t go against green"."

Take, for example, these three very different color schemes built around Greenery:



Rev It Up



(This color scheme incorporates last year"s two colors of the year: Rose Quartz & Serenity.)


Pretty refreshing, right? Here"s how the three palettes come together against the same Greenery wall:

Greenery has had a fascinating history throughout the 19th century và, now, the 20th century. According to lớn Eiseman, the spirited shade first debuted in the 20s, when women started making more daring fashion choices and Greenery appeared on the cover of a Vogue pattern book.

The hue disappeared when the United States went inlớn recession in the "30s, followed by war in the "40s, a time when resources for colors were sent away for use in the military. It wasn"t until the "60s that bold colors returned with a splash, và after the publication of "Silent Spring" by Rachel Charleston in 1962, bright green was heralded as beabé of environmental friendliness into the "70s.

In the "90s, Greenery emerged once again as part of the Dotcom era (remember that táo Apple green shade of the iMac?) & has been spotted in the kiến thiết world ever since. Today, however, Greenery is being used in commercial, fashion and interior kiến thiết more than ever, according to lớn Eiseman.

"In trang chính thiết kế, we have sầu seen this brighter yellow green before, but the acceptance cấp độ has now reached a point where people are really embracing it," she says. "We feel lượt thích next year"s going khổng lồ be the breakout year for the color, even for people who might look at it và say, "Oh, I"m not so sure if I lượt thích that.""

Because of its inherently neutral traits, Greenery can be used in large or small doses, with or without other neutrals, và as an accent or a foundation for other color schemes.
