Color Trend in 2017

With spring just around the corner, many people focus on rejuvenating their homes, often through the addition of color. And often the choice they make is to use the Pantone Color Institute’s choice for Color of the Year. Click the YouTube link below to see it in action, and then speak with a trained specialist at Windo VanGo here in Baltimore to get some ideas about how you can introduce this color to your home.

The Choice Is PANTONE Greenery

Going “green” is the color choice for 2017. According to Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, this yellow-green color “symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” Dubbed “nature’s neutral,” Greenery will be seen in anything from the new leaf green Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster to the flourishing foliage colors used by Gucci and Prada.

Choosing the Color of the Year

From start to finish, the process takes approximately nine months. The staff at PANTONE explores a variety of industries to collect what they refer to as “proof points,” studying past trends to try to pinpoint future ones. They review the latest from the auto industry, designer runways, and interior decorating showcases. Once they identify the trends, they narrow down the choices.

You may also consider new custom drapery or valances. Always fashion-forward and ahead of the trends are Hunter Douglas window treatments.
