This year's PANTONE colour of the year is Greenery. According to PANTONE, Greenery is 'a refreshing and revitalizing shade, which is symbolic of new beginnings'. With the new year just starting, Greenery is the perfect colour to use in things such as interior design, in particular home decor. I think that Greenery is a colour that many people will think is too vibrant and too bright to use in big amounts, however if used well, it can help to transform a space into something different, something unusual.
Since Greenery is the nature's neutral, no wonder the environment and nature were the first things that I thought of when I have first seen this colour. This colour could possibly allow people to think about their surroundings and what kind of an impact they might be having on it or what kind of an impact it may be having on them. In a world that is very modernised and full of technology, that in some cases ruin our environemt, I think that this colour helps to remind us about nature, how precious it is and how we should take care of it.
However, Greenery is not all about our surrounding, but it is also about ourselves and personal goals. This colour is said to be about the 'pursuit of personal passions and vitality'. As it symbolises new beginnings and the idea of persuing personal passions, it should inspire us to start something new, start something that we will be proud of, something that might make a difference to us, and maybe to others.
