The Good Lord's Favorite Neutral: Greenery by Pantone

Kermit Loves Pantone's Color of the Year

After two years of really oogie choices for Color of the Year, Pantone has finally picked a winner just this past December. It's really starting to pick up steam. Everyone will be wearing it on March 17th, when every major city in the nation will celebrate our Color of the Year with parades and festivities of every sort.

It's even received some amazing endorsements from several notable personages.i

Finger of God

It's sort of a clean, spry asparagus green. There is enough yellow undertone to make it quite zippy. You can use it sparingly, to add a slight whiff of freshly mown lawn to any decor. Or, you can totally marinate in it, like getting drunk on that green Creme de Menthe Schnapps when you were in a the 8th grade. It's all up to you!

 Use it in a living room to bring the outdoors in. Use it in the bedroom and it will be just like making love every single night of your life by a waterfall on Mount Kilauea. And when you get tired of that fantasy, just turn off the lights! Save money by using it in the office to keep you awake, instead of all that fancy-schmancy coffee you drink. Or, use it on the exterior of your house, to camouflage it into the surrounding foliage, while the zombies eat your neighbors. You know, those idiots with that loud beige house.


No matter how you choose, you can't lose with this versatile color. We tried to pair it with several other paint colors we totally hate, and no matter what we did, IT ALL LOOKED GREAT! ​

I really love it as an accent color. However, I'm not sure I could paint an entire room or house with the color. Hahaha. It's so fresh and fun though.  Thanks for sharing. D
