We’ve been waiting on the edges of our seats for Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year announcement, and even managed to make a few predictions ourselves. This morning, it was revealed that the ruling shade of 2017 is Greenery! Dubbed as a “refreshing and revitalizing shade,” Pantone has earmarked Greenery as a symbol of new beginnings.

“A vivacious yellow-green like Greenery or New Shoot T14-18 is the perfect hue for any space that needs an instant jolt of energy or where you find yourself needing a touch of nature, inspiration and renewal,” says BEHR color expert Erika Woelfel. “I would suggest using it on the walls of a bathroom, as decorative accents—pillows, plant life and abstract art—in living rooms or kitchens, or on your front door to create an encouraging, welcoming environment for guests.”

As we make our way into the New Year, we can’t think of a more inspiring mantra to set the tone!
