Color-management company Pantone Color Institute recently announced its Color of the Year for 2017, a vibrant spring-green hue called Greenery. If you’re among those who find Greenery a bit too bright to be used in or on your home, take heed. Paint manufacturers have chimed in with their various selections for Color of the Year and, for the most part, it’s a much mellower bunch. Deep grayish blues and purples dominate, but some warm neutrals and bold yellows are also offered up.
Shown here are the various 2017 paint colors of the year, from top to bottom: Shadow, from Benjamin Moore; Violet Verbena, from PPG Paints; Byzantine Blue, from Glidden; Cloudberry, from Olympic; Kettleman, from Kelly-Moore; Poised Taupe, from Sherwin-Williams; and Honey Glow, from Dunn-Edwards.
