Pantone Color of the Year – Greenery!

By: Rebecca Allen, eyewear architect, ABOC – Greenery symbolizes new beginnings, which is just what is needed at the start of a new year. As 2017 begins and you are starting a new beginning and resolutions, be sure to incorporate the color Greenery 15-0343, Pantone’s Color of the Year, into your life. This bright yellow-green color evokes a fresh start to the new year with a “renewal, revival, and restoration.” The color can bring nature inside with a touch of paint on the walls, a throw on the couch or an accent pillow.

Greenery has been spotted on red carpets, celebrities out on the town and clothing. It’s especially relevant in our industry, as there are many frames in this color. Here are a few that you could pick-up at our Midtown location:

One of the many reasons we love this color is that it can be paired with other colors, including hot pink, bright blue, white and navy. In fact, you would be surprised at how easily this color fits in with your wardrobe! At Eclectic Eye, we carry frames that have accents of Greenery on the temples, as well as frames that are entirely this beautiful hue.

The color is described as able to “improve self-esteem, reduce anxiety, and heighten awareness of one’s surroundings.” Color psychology suggests that other colors in the blue and green tones tend to have the same calming effect, similar to a walk in nature. Who wouldn’t want to wear this calming color every day? Come see us and we will help you find the perfect frame in this serene color.

Remember: a frame is art for your face!
