Fresh for 2017: Art Inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year, Greenery

In celebration of new beginnings, Saatchi Art is excited to share a special collection of original artworks inspired by Greenery, Pantone’s new color of the year for 2017. Lush spring green is the color of growth and transformation. Introducing new contemporary art with a splash of leafy green can bring a bit of the outside in while revitalizing your rooms in preparation for a more productive and harmonious new year.

A wonderful advantage to gracing your home design with a touch of Greenery is how well it works with a range of other shades, including Pantone picks for 2016, refreshing Serenity blue and soft Rose Quartz. Explore Pantone’s “Transitions” palette or visit our new Greenery With Transition Colors Art Collection for more inspired color combinations…

There are lots of ways to add a sprig of Greenery to your space besides plants or botanical artwork.

Statement-worthy abstracts and lushly layered figurative art are beautiful ways to welcome in a more verdant vibe and get poised for growth this year.

One of the nicest aspects of Greenery is how well it plays with others.

Our latest collection includes contemporary artwork selected to compliment Greenery-infused interiors and plush green furnishings, like this pair of works featuring pinky-reds…

Try pairing a bit of Greenery with tranquil blues to summon a sense of beachy relaxation to your rooms.

Feature smaller artworks solo or in pairs to refresh your entryway or spruce up your dining nook…

…Or feature an oversized abstract painting to create a balanced meditative focal point in a modern minimal space.
