2017 Pantone Color of the Year-Greenery

A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Greenery is a zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.  Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors-Greenery is nature’s neutral.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

Design School: Color Green

It’s time to analyze another wildly popular color: Green.   A cool color, found in abundance in the natural world, it symbolizes fertility, abundance and good luck.  Green is shown to improve reading ability, reduce stress and produce an overall calming effect.  Family rooms and bedrooms are well suited in the color green.  However, I do not recommend intense green walls in a bath since the green reflection on one’s skin is not attractive.

The White House Green Room, with its intimate scale and distinctive color, serves as a state parlor and has been a favorite of Presidents and their families.

Green combines well with many colors.  We used blue and green together in this master bedroom on Folly beach.  Take note of the pale green ceiling
