2017 Pantone Color Report and Color of the Year

Pantone Color Report

Each year, the Pantone Institute’s Color Trends report inspires designers, decorators, and florists to create beautiful designs. Ten colors are chosen by experts as the most likely to dominate the landscape in the following season, and one is given the honor of being named the Color of the Year. In 2017, the Pantone color report top pick goes to Greenery, a yellow-green hue that expresses the renewal of springtime.  This color has recently been a favorite of many brides, as the fresh green hue looks organically beautiful against a white backdrop.

If you are planning a Snohomish County wedding in 2017, the floral experts at Flora D’Amore have the expertise and creativity you are looking for.  Whether you are inspired by  Greenery or one of the other hues from the list – we will advise you as to the most stunning flowers, and floral combinations, to bring your vision to life.

Green hydrangea and roses, cymbidium orchids, Fuji mums, and Bells of Ireland are quintessential examples of this unique shade, and it is easy to see why it is a top trending color for wedding bouquets. Other organic elements such as ferns and berries add to the aesthetic.

Greenery graciously shares its spotlight with virtually every other hue on the Pantone color report. The below bouquet showcases the top color along with Niagara, a relaxed blue shade which contributes striking flair; and Pink Yarrow, a hot pink shade that adds vibrancy and excitement.
Pantone color reportColorful Bouquet Ideas: Blend either Niagara or Blue Lapis (an intense blue shade found in the iris and delphinium) with Flame, a deep orange shade, for exotic tropical designs. Add Yellow Primrose to Greenery and Niagara for cool bouquets that reflect sun, sky, and nature’s annual rejuvenation.

Pinks are always appropriate at a wedding, and the list has two shades of the popular color. The aforementioned Pink Yarrow is evidenced in roses, gerbera daisies, and peonies; while the more subtle Pale Dogwood exudes a soft, romantic vintage feeling.  Pantone color report
