Our world is filled with colour. Lets take a moment to look around at what colours are trending in 2017.
Each year Pantone Incorporated announces a Colour of the Year; a colour snapshot of what they see taking place in the global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude. In 2017 they have chosen Greenery. Greenery has been chosen for it’s “refreshing and revitalising shade” and for being “symbolic of new beginnings.”
Rich Deep Hues
As well as greenery, expect to see a rise in deep hues such as khaki and olive green, working alongside brick reds, maroon brown and charcoal grey to recreate a sense of rich and earthy minerals and materials. Terracotta and deep coloured woods will be back too.
