Color to watch : Pantone’s Kale

Everyone is posting about Greenery as the color for 2017, but its pal, Pantone’s Kale, another color projected to be hot in Spring 2017, suffers from a shortage of mentions.

It’s a shame, because between the 2 shades, Kale easily wins my vote. Softer and more ‘earthy’ than the limey Greenery everyone is raving about, Kale is easier to work with, both in interior design as well as fashion – you won’t catch me alive wearing Greenery this year, but Kale and its hue closer to a foliage-based and fatigue green? Yes, that I most certainly can do. Here is Kale in action.

  1. I like both, but kale definitely wins me over. I’m starting to use it more in my watercolor paintings than greenery because I love the deep earthy, rustic tone.

  2. gorgeous colour! I’ve recently bought a window blind in this colour I’m going for the Hollywood glamour look!

    1. Wow, it must look amazing with the light filtering through! Thanks for sharing @Hannah!
