NATURE-INSPIRED FINISHESIn 2017, nature-inspired finishes are front and center for bringing the beauty of nature, inside. Evidence? Well, this past December, the Pantone Institute announced its 2017 Color of the Year: Greenery.
“Greenery signifies beginnings: a fresh New Year; healthier food resolutions and growing vegetarian trends; grass and the outdoors during spring and summer,” according to Karen Hua, writer for Forbes.com.
We get it – soothing, natural colors and textures create a sense of balance and serenity in an otherwise chaotic world. And who couldn’t use a little balance and serenity today?
“There’s a growing desire to reconnect with Nature and what is real and find ways to disconnect from technology. We need a break. We need to stop and breathe,” Laurie Pressman, the Pantone Color Institute’s vice president, told FORBES. “(Greenery) is about unity and community—connecting to oneself and others and a higher purpose, Nature.”

Every year since 2000, Pantone has chosen a color that reflects the current cultural climate. In the following year, the color has historically influenced trends in all facets of design—architecture, interior décor, fashion, food, travel—the list goes on.
