• Expect to see a lot of spring green, called Greenery, in 2017.  Do you ever wonder how these color trends happen? Well, it’s definitely not random. The Pantone company studies trends across media, products and fashion.  They then select a color which they think represents the coming trend.  In a way, they then solidify the trend by spreading that color within the larger manufacturing world.

    The company is best known for its Pantone Matching System (PMS), which is a proprietary color service used in a variety of industries, primarily printing, though sometimes in the manufacture of colored paint, fabric, and plastics. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all reference a Pantone numbered color, making sure colors match without direct contact with one another.

    Greenery is apparently meant to give us “the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”

    In 2016 they selected 2 colors to be used together – Rose Quartz, a warm embracing rose tone and Serenity, a cool tranquil blue.

    As a designer and entrepreneur, products for women have always been my focus. In my first company DianneSullivan Designs, I designed and made fun jewelry for young women to buy in boutiques and department stores. That company transitioned into Miraflores Designs which designed and supplied custom designed soap, shampoo and other toiletries for hotel chains including Hyatt, Sheraton and many others. After selling that company, my next company, Bay Linens, Inc, designed decorative bedding which was sold through Bloomingdales, Bed, Bath & Beyond and other retailers. Our home decor products, with the brand, China Seas, was sold at Isetan Department stores in Japan. At this stage of life I'm connecting with other women over 50 who want to examine their interests and to connect with each other. At ZestNow.com I want to gather useful information and inspiration for this new phase of life.
