The Pantone Color of the Year represents rejuvenation, wiping the previous year's color slate clean and forecasting the hue that will refresh the design world in the coming year ahead. The 2017 Color of the Year is Greenery; a refreshing and revitalizing shade that is symbolic of new beginnings. Greenery is described by Pantone as nature’s neutral; a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens are restored, revived, and renewed. Symbolic of flourishing foliage, Greenery is said to signal consumers to take a deep breath, reinvigorate, and oxygenate.

We know that color choices can be directly linked to personality traits or have an effect on moods, therefore it makes sense that Greenery is said to be representative of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality. Greenery is a symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what is taking place in current global culture and serving as an expression of attitude and mood.

A kitchen is a great place for the color green, being the room where we refuel and refresh. For those looking to invite the essence of nature into one’s home, how can the color green successfully be introduced into your kitchen? 

Or if Greenery isn’t the perfect shade for you, we think inviting any shade of green into your home is representative of nature’s refreshing qualities. Big Chill’s color palette leaves you with plenty of options if looking for a customizable shade of appliance (with over 200 different shades). Green is good!



Although Greenery is an eye-popping shade of yellow-green, it serves as an unexpected universal base for an assortment of other colors. If you use green as a neutral color (just like Mother Nature does), green is a versatile "trans-seasonal" shade that lends itself to many color combinations. Greenery pairs well with neutrals, brights, pastels, metallics, and even deeper shades of green.


Basil Green

Offered as a part of Big Chill's Pro Line, basil green is one of our standard color choices. This shade of green is rich with personality, resembling the stunning shades of green that reveal themselves in nature during spring and summer seasons.



Jadeite Green

Big Chill's jadeite green is a bright and invigorating shade that is reminiscent of the bright colors seen during spring and summer. Jadeite green or similar shades look good in kitchens when displayed in bursts of color, and contrast well with a white or gray color scheme.


Mint Green

This refreshing and minty shade was common in homes of the 1950's and a popular choice among Big Chill customers. Mint green pairs well in kitchens with white or silver, and adds the perfect pop of color when displayed on a retro appliance like a refrigerator or stove.


Kelly Green

The color green is understood to be the most restful and relaxing color for the human eye to view. An appliance in a bright color like kelly green can easily be the focal point of your kitchen and allow you to keep the rest of your decorations neutral.
