A new year usually marks a new beginning and, in the art world, the start of a new trend. It seems apt, then, for us to start 2017 with a blog about Pantone's new colour of the year... Greenery!
Each year, US corporation Pantone - renowned for their standardised colour matching system - chooses a shade to symbolise the 12 months ahead. The choice is designed to provide a snapshot of the world around us, with Greenery ('a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade', according to Pantone) representing new beginnings, the great outdoors and the need for us to take a step back from the 'tumultuous social and political environment' and reconnect with the natural world around us.
The first months of the new year are a perfect time for you to revamp your interior decor, so why not embrace the 2017 colour of the year and introduce some green into your home? A simple way to do this of course is to add a few pot plants to your home to really bring the outside in...
And if you're really feeling the colour green, perhaps you'd like to take a look at one of our vibrant canvases to spruce up a wall - Indy Rush contrasts green with grey to create a dreamy rush of colour, while Marea Haze's exotic purples and greens will offer a talking point wherever you decide to place it.
For more on how you can make natural green work in your home, see our recent piece on green and metallic wall art.
