The Pantone Color of the Year is Here!

DEC 9, 2016

It may as well be an International Holiday for designers everywhere: The release day of Pantone’s Color of the Year. Always on trend and (perhaps) even ahead of the trend, Pantone has chosen a fresh, spring green as their heralded hue. Love it or hate it, “Greenery” is about to have its day in the sun and you may just start seeing Pantone 15-0343 everywhere. We’ve rounded up our favorite leafy green hued designs from the Spoonflower Marketplace below. Just tap each image to shop the designs on fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap.  Not a huge fan of greenery? Just give it some time, it just might grow on you.

Regardless of the affect this particular hue may have on our skin tone, we can always get down with the symbolism behind fresh, leafy green, and the promise that we can all start afresh with a healthier attitude in 2017. We’ll “cheers” our green juice and matcha tea to that!
