There's a reason all of your favorite vacation spots are painted the same color -- Marrs green

It ain't easy being green -- Marrs green, to be exact.

The deep blue and green hue was recently selected as the world's favorite color by an online global survey. The survey, which was conducted by the paper company G.F. Smith and Hull 2017 UK City of Culture, questioned over 30,000 people in 100 countries through a series of palettes.

Those surveyed would hover over "infinite palette of shades" until they had selected a color they liked the most.

The color was later named after Annie Marrs, a UNESCO worker from Dundee, Scotland. Marrs was boating in her hometown, on the River Tay, when she saw "those beautiful green, blue tones - some very grey but some really bright and vibrant and deep and rich that dance in the water," she said, according to The Telegraph.

When she returned home that day, she took part in the online survey, and chose the shade that most resonated with her, the shade you see above. Her suggested hue ended up being the most loved by all of the survey's participants.

It's no coincidence, of course, that Marrs green is one of the more preferred colors of hotels and resorts around the world. The hue gives off a sense of tranquility and peace, something guests desire to achieve when they're on vacation.

There's a purpose behind the shade.

"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," said Caroline Till, Editor of Viewpoint Colour Magazine, to The Telegraph.

Similarly, the 2017 pantone color of the year, called Greenery, seeked to evoke a sense of calming and inspiration as "one of nature's neutrals."

Whether these resorts incorporate the color with bold backsplashes, subtle pillows or hidden splashes of decor, Marrs green is right there, doing its job.
