10 Works Inspired by Pantone's Colour of the Year


10 Works Inspired by Pantone's Colour of the Year
"Rays of Yellow Light" (2013) by Sean Wang

2017 did not seem to get off to a very good start, with the political uncertainity of the year before spilling over. Every year, Pantone symbolically selects a colour as Colour of the Year, to represent the mood or attitude of our current glocal climate. This year's colour 'Greenery' is described as a "fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew." It is an expression of positivity and return to nature, amidst the chaos and turmoil in our everyday.

What better way to surround yourself with such a positive and fresh feeling, than to integrate Greenery into your life this year! If you're not keen on painting your entire home in this shade, perhaps the perfect way to bring it into your life is with an artwork that looks like it could have been inspired by Pantone's Greenery! We've selected 10 of our favourites from for that subtle and elegant way to bring breathing space back into your life.
