What does it mean to go green in 2017? Well, while some of you might think we’re talking about expanding your environmental efforts, we’re actually referring to a Pantone colour. The authority on colour announced late last year that Greenery 15-0343 was their selection for 2017 Colour of the Year. They added that the yellow-green shade was a “symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.” With Pantone’s strong influence permeating into all areas of design, culture and lifestyle (food, fashion, technology, etc.), expect to see a whole lot of yellowy-green goodness in the next 12+ months.
To help you join in on Pantone’s zesty Greenery year-long party, we’ve put together a list of fun, yellowy-green goods that you can wear, play with, drink…and most importantly, design and decorate with. Get ready to Go Green(ery)!!
When Diana Vreeland launched her scent VIVACIOUSLY BOLD in a vivaciously bold green bottle, it created quite a buzz. This is one bottle of eau de parfum you’ll want to leave out “accidentally” on the guest bathroom vanity….oops!! Get yours here.
Ready to up your Instagram game? Then droning may be the thing for you. They capture stunning aerial images and breathtakingly beautiful videos. You can easily spend up to $3000+ for an advanced model or you can spend around $300 for a hobby level drone like this one by Protocol. Please note that there are some restrictions and regulations to flying drones. Before you fly, we encourage you to check out the do’s and don’ts according to your state or provincial transport authority.
