Pantone Color of the Year: Greenery

Last year I loved learning about Pantone’s color of the year which, for 2016, was Rose Quarts and Serenity. I attempted a piece of artwork with it and hung it up on my bedroom wall. Now I’m more conscience of the colors around me.

When I first found out that Pantone chose Greenery for 2017, I was disappointed. Why such a leafy green? It reminds me of houseplants… all those poor, helpless plants I’ve killed. *Queue adulting failure tears.*

Then I was uplifted. My favorite college basketball team, the Michigan State Spartans, are green and white. Grass is green, the leaves on trees are green, so are some lizards, cats eyes, my 2017 journal is sort-of green, and I keep noticing more.


“I invite you to count the colors in your bedroom.” -Phoebe Buffay

It’s kind of fun to look around the room you’re in and try to count the colors. It’s a great way to get your mind off of stress. Here are the things I can see from my desk that are green.

Sharpie, notebook, Iphone charger, sweater, organizer, sticky notes, lightsaber, pen, battery, catnip, turtle, books, shopping bag, another turtle, more sharpies, you get the idea.

Happy counting!
