In 2017, Pantone’s Color of the Year was Greenery: a fresh, zesty, and life-affirming shade of yellow-green, reminiscent of the first days of spring. This article explores how professional designers are incorporating Greenery and other nature’s neutrals from Pantone’s Forest Floor palette into their interior designs.
