If you’re looking for a new color for a room or your home, maybe it’s time to consider this year’s Color of the Year. To see a sample in person or to discuss ways to add color to your décor, speak with a trained professional at Altra Home Décor serving the greater Phoenix area. We’ll be happy to share our tips.

Going “green” is the color choice for 2017, according to the PANTONE Color Institute, which calls itself the “global color authority.” Reminiscent of the first day of spring, the official PANTONE color selection is 15-0343, titled Greenery. According to Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the PANTONE Color Institute, this yellow-green, snow pea color “is the color of hopefulness and of our connection to nature. It speaks to what we call the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew.” From the new leaf green Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster to the flourishing foliage colors used by Gucci and Prada, this color is everywhere.

How the Color Is Selected

Selecting the Color of the Year takes approximately nine months. The staff at PANTONE explores a variety of industries to collect what they refer to as “proof points.” They review the latest from the auto industry, designer runways, and interior decorating showcases. Once they identify the trends, they narrow down the choices.
