There is a first time for everything! Pantone just announced not one but two shades, Rose Quartz & Serenity, as the 2016 Color of the Year. This harmonious duo came as a happy surprise. It is not like anyone expected the pairing of two opposites, a warm dusty pink and a cool blue.

The inspiration came from the ever changing and chaotic times that we now live in; consumers seek harmony and mindfulness which can be found in color.

 

 

 

Rose Quartz (Pantone 13-1520) is a “persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.”

Serenity (Pantone 15-3919) is “weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”
