Hello out there my lovlies! And Happy New Year! I truly hope you are all doing well. It’s been waaaay too long since I wrote a blog. But I thought what a perfect time to do it! Pantone recently announced their Color of the Year for 2017 and it also happens to be my 2nd anniversary since I started blogging. YAY!
Pantone went with an earthy yellow green this year called “Geenery” (which is funny because that’s the name of a restaurant I worked at for 10 years lol)
Now I do think it is a pretty shade for sure…But… I have to be honest, Green is not very high on my list of favorite colors. And out of the 2 greens that Pantone listed in the top 10 of 2017, I liked Kale better.
Like I said, Greenery is a pretty color. Just not my fav. I can see it making for some seriously Gorgeous weddings for sure! Here is the rest of the Top 10 for you.
As you can see, the trend definitely seems to be leaning towards earthy, muted & dusty colors. Even the “brighter” shades are muted. Which I have been seeing this trend for a few months now, especially in the beauty industry. I think I’m going to officially say 2017 is the year of the “Ugly Pretty Colors”!! Yep! That describes it perfectly 💚💚💚👍💯 According to Pantone the top 10 is “A Mixture of Vitality, Relaxation and the Great Outdoors” and Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute said, “One of the things that we saw this year, was a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in context that was different than the traditional”. And to me this makes a lot of sense. The last decade we as humans have really come full circle for the most part when looking at how we see our environment. Earth day, going “green”, recycling and trying to consume more organically. Makes perfect sense for the color of the year to be Greenery.
Honestly my personal favorites are Lapis Blue, Island Paradise, Hazelnut and Niagara.
What are your favorites? What do you think of the color of the year? I’d love to hear from you. Hope y’all have a great day. And remember to always add a lil dapper to your everyday!
