We have to admit that we were wrong with our pick of Kale for the new color of the year.
On December 8, Pantone announced that the color of the year is Greenery, “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that is symbolic of new beginnings.” Although Kale was definitely among the contenders based on trends from Fashion Week, Greenery was the winning color.
As Pantone noted in their release, “every color of the year is a reflection of society – a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture……….. Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute believes that this color represents our desire to rejuvenate and revitalize.” After a tumultuous 2016, putting Greenery on your body, around your house, or on your desk can be a symbolic way to relieve stress. It is the color of hopefulness.
It is not our favorite or one that we will recommend often, but, it will probably be a popular choice this year!
