A Bright Green Beginning to 2017

Sherwin Williams does it, Benjamin Moore does it and so does Pantone. A few weeks back, Pantone released their 2017 Color of the Year, Greenery to an audience of color enthusiasts, interior and graphic designers alike.   Before the color was announced, I must have been subconsciously channeling green.
