Pantone Color of The Year 2017: Greenery

– The Chrysalis Palette –

In the summer of 2013, the Inner Arbor Trust established its brand mark and the green color palette for the Chrysalis, the first phase development in Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods.
On December 8, 2016, the Pantone Color Institute, the world's prognosticators of all things color, announced the 2017 Color of The Year: Greenery.
Pantone Color Institute Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, could not have better described the psychology for the color choice for the Inner Arbor Trust brand mark or the Spring Green color of the Chrysalis, which is, indeed, opening in 2017.

Pantone Color Institute on The 2017 Color of The Year: Greenery

A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally.

A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront - it is an omnipresent hue around the world. A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

This is the color of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature. It speaks to what we call the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew. Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground. It is something life affirming to look forward to.
— Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute
Greenery burst forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.
— Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute
The tangy yellow-green speaks to our desire to express, explore, experiment and reinvent, imparting a sense of buoyancy. Through its reassuring yet assertive vibrancy, Greenery offers us self-assurance and boldness to live life on our own terms, during a time when we are redefining what makes us successful and happy.

The nature of nature is borne in color.

Beyond being in nature, the Chrysalis in Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods is OF nature.
— Michael McCall, President, Strategic Leisure
While often associated with environmentalism and nature, Greenery is also a unifying thread in tech and innovation because of its association with boldness, vigor and modernity.

Bringing the outside in, the shade - like the plant life it represents - can improve self-esteem, reduce anxiety and heighten awareness of one’s surroundings.
