THURSDAY TREND - Pantone Color of the Year 2017 - GREENERY. Well, it was a must to look at Pantone's 2017 color for my first Thursday Trend since "Greenery" was announced. HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of this choice and I am very prone to using nice yellow-greens in many of my designs. Just take a look at my web site and you will see shade of that type of green in so many of my floral designs. Here is what Pantone has to say about "Greenery" - "Greenery is a fresh and 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, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate. Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront - it is an omnipresent hue around the world. A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality." AHHHH, what's not to like about that description?!
