Whether you like it or not, the colour people have spoken and green will be everywhere this coming year. Goodbye Rose Quartz and Serenity, Pantone has decided it’s all about Greenery this year! The vibrant, zesty yellow green evokes images of lush gardens and a beautiful Spring day. According to Pantone, Greenery symbolises the re-connection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose amid a complex social and political landscape. Deep!
