Color forecasters at Pantone Color Institute have declared “greenery” as next year’s color of the year. The company describes it as “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore, and renew.” Laurie Pressman, vice president of Pantone Color Institute, says the color was picked largely because it represents rebirth and regeneration. “We are so submerged in our routines and tethered to devices, but we have a great desire to disconnect and replenish,” Pressman says.
More recently, green has stood out on fashion runways, in makeup, and in cars. For example, “greenery” appeared on Mercedes and Skoda car models this year.
