Last week, Pantone announced their color of the year for 2017. While some of us on the interwebs thought “dumpster fire orange” might be more appropriate, Pantone’s color forecasters (yep, that’s a job!) went with Greenery– “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.” This green is fresh and bright, but can go Kermit-looking pretty fast, so I decided to make a moodboard inspired by Greenery that goes in a more refined direction. I was inspired by indie decor stores like Ink & Peat, that place a high value on clean modern design, adding warmth created by metals and greenery, and referring to a distinctly “hipster” vibe.
What do you think, is this year’s color a hit or a swing and a miss?
