A Fresh New Year Brings New Color Inspiration.
Pantone just announced the New Pantone Color of the Year for 2017…PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery.
Greenery is fresh and vibrant but calming. It makes me long for spring and reminds me of green jeweled sea glass.
It’s a versatile color that can be paired with cool metallics or blended with neutrals in an interior space designed to bring the outside in.

Greenery Color Inspiration Board
As a graphic designer, color is near and dear to my heart. I like to make inspiration boards to give me a point of reference and allow me to explore creative possibilities.
When creating a color inspiration board, I look for imagery that best represents the tone and mood that a color conveys. I also also look for imagery that has pops of complementary colors and depth with light and dark tones.
Here’s the inspiration board I created for PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery. I hope it gives you some great ideas for incorporating this versatile color into your own creative endeavors.
