We believe color is its own language, effectively communicating emotion through shades. Pantone, the leading authority on color systems and color communication, believes this, too. Each year, Pantone chooses a color of the year—a shade that represents the overall happenings in our global culture and expresses the general feelings those current events evoke.

Pantone has recently announced the 2017 color of the year, and it is: Greenery!

This shade often brings to mind new life and health, and we love the hopeful images Greenery brings to us. Pantone knew we needed a color as serene and life-giving as Greenery this year.

Pantone’s Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, says, “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”

At Renewal Remodels & Additions, we believe in the power of color and we love the hope for restoration and reconnection behind this year’s color of the year. Because Pantone is such an influential voice on color and color combinations, we expect to see a lot more Greenery in this year’s styles and trends. While the impact of our culture led Pantone to choose this color, this color will also impact our culture—keep your eye out for Greenery making its way into stores more frequently this year!

We love this shade as an accent color and as a way to add a lively pop to the color scheme of a room. Our team cannot wait to see how we will be able to use this color of the year to add life and peacefulness to the design of your space.

Here are some subtle ways to incorporate this color in your home decor:
