“Marrs Green” has been voted the World’s Favorite Color. The findings follow a global survey by papermakers G . F Smith, where thousands of people spanning over 100 countries worldwide voted for their most loved color.
The teal shade has been named “Marrs Green” in honor of survey participant Annie Marrs, who chose the shade closest to the winning hue.
“I’m absolutely delighted to have picked the World’s Favorite Color!” says Marrs. “The color was inspired by the landscape that surrounds me at home in Scotland and that deep green hue with a tinge of blue has always been a favorite of mine.”
Marrs Green will now join the iconic Colorplan range as the temporary 51st shade, and is now available for use by designers, brands and individuals.
Caroline Till, editor of Viewpoint Colour Magazine, said the teal color resonates with so many of us globally due to a yearning for the harmony of nature.
“As the contemporary condition of ‘nature deficit’ rises in the context of increasingly urban and digital lifestyles, we seek to reconnect with the natural world, hence the current global popularity of the color green,” says Till. “In these uncertain times, where political and social upheaval has become the norm, we crave the calming tranquility of green and its association with the reassuring certainty of nature’s cycles.”
