Trump tweeted about it too: @realDonaldTrump: “Can you believe @pantone chose such a biased Colour of the Year? Another Greens Party conspiracy, bcos climate change is a scam! Shame on u Greenery”
Tony Abbott took a different position: @TonyAbbottMHR: “Charcoal would’ve been a superior colour choice for @Pantone Colour of the Year. Classic and good for humanity”.
Kermit the Frog is bound to have a resurgence in 2017 thanks to the increase in love towards his particular shade of green. And while it is apparently not easy being green, it is easy to bask in the glory of thousands of bloggers drawing long bows about how 2017 is your year, furry fictitious frog friend.
Much of the coverage of Pantone’s choice – which is slated to influence fashion, interiors and weddings to name a few – focuses on the colour’s life affirming-ness (shoosh, that is a word), and that it signifies new growth, revitalisation and rejuvenation. After the extreme ball ache that has been 2016, I am all for this. Affirm my life, Pantone! Rejuvenate me, Greenery! Revitalise my person, stat! I promise to paint my house Greenery, wear only Greenery coloured clothes, cover myself in alien slime, put Kermit on repeat and eat a diet of avocados, kale and the leaves of office plants, if it will mean a better year in 2017. Some might say I am stealing The Green Lady’s schtick (feast your eyes, below), but I promise, I’m only borrowing it for 2017.
We have a bunch of sexy green furniture to hire to make your next event ‘Greenery’ central. See them here! And below! Good Day.
