pantone 2017 color of the year!
Rose Quartz and Serenity (a light pink and a baby blue) are ushered out as the new Pantone color of the year 2017 has been declared to be ‘Greenery”.
“A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. 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.”

This color was a strong theme at Septembers fashion week, there’s some talk about it being a soothing respite from today’s political climate, and like the currently leading edge design eras being revisited right now in interior design, fashion and even music right now- this shade of green echoes hues from the 70’s and 80’s.
This clip from an original (and highly treasured original book we have on 80’s Memphis Design) shows some of the actual Ettore Sottsass designed laminates featuring some of these greens. These completely new and groundbreaking colors and patterns by the Italian designer were really the germination of the entire Memphis design movement in the 80’s.
Or, if all this is a bit too groovy for you, we can tone things down with this very proper library from what looks like the early 80’s, resplendent in what was the “au courant” shade of green.
