New Year, New Colour

Every year there is endless speculation about what the next trends will be; technology, fashion, design, gardening. Nothing is out of bounds these days!

Pantone, the world-renowned authority on colour, has recently announced their Colour Of The Year for 2017 – Greenery – a bright shade bursting with vitality. We at Cobra think it’s an excellent choice!


Their official description is “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew… The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world.”

And in the current turbulent social and political climate, seeking a stronger connection with nature and going back to basics might be exactly what we need.

Greenery also reflects the world’s growing concern for our environment; our lifestyle choices, design ideas, architecture and efforts to recycle and reuse as much as possible are values that continue to resonate on a global scale.

Green is synonymous is the outdoors and gardens – what’s more green than grass?! At Cobra we’re passionate about green, green grass and keeping lawns healthy so we were delighted when we heard Pantone’s choice for 2017.

So, here’s to a greener, happier, healthier 2017!
