Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year is Greenery, a bright, vibrant hue that inspires a feeling of renewal and reinvention in home design.

“Through its reassuring yet assertive vibrancy, Greenery offers us self-assurance and boldness to live life on our own terms, during a time when we are redefining what makes us successful and happy,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Designers at York Wallcoverings and Chella Textiles understand the power of Greenery as a mood-maker that complements corals, enlivens yellows, and balances blues. Whether splashed in whimsical watercolors, set in straight-up stripes or fused into florals and paisleys, Greenery sets a welcoming tone, indoors and out.
