This colour represents new growth and change. It’s aim is to calm and remind us that life keeps going and we should keep growing and changing.

It’s a warm brighter shade of green and will look great with colours in palettes including:

  • Radiant

  • Opulent

with softer versions suiting

  • Spicy
  • Exotic

What to Pair with Pantone Greenery

It pairs well with turquoise and aqua blues, vivid violets and tasty orange.

Wear it with navy, camel and soft whites if you want to pair it with a neutral.

Pantone Greenery - what colours to wear it with

For those of us with cooler palettes that it doesn’t suit, think about adding a potplant or two to your office or home to bring in that healthy green and to enjoy the colour.

Right now, Greenery surrounds me – as I look out my office window into the spring leaves of my Liquid Amber tree – the leaves are lush and green in this exact shade.

Will you be choosing some Greenery in 2017?
