Every year, Pantone chooses a color that reflects the current cultural climate and serves as an expression of a mood and/or attitude. 2016 was the year of Rose Quartz & Serenity, the inspiration behind this duo came from the ever changing and chaotic times where consumers were seeking harmony and mindfulness which was found in these two calming pastel colors. We were happy to hear that Pantone unveiled the 2017 “Color of the Year” to be: Greenery. Greenery signifies new beginnings & growth! 2017 let’s do this!
“Greenery burst forth in 2017 to provide us with 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.”
Greenery is nature’s neutral! In a world taken over by technology, Pantone has partnered with Airbnb to create an experience in nature inspired by Greenary! “There’s a growing desire to reconnect with nature and what is real, and find ways to disconnect from technology. We need a break. We need to stop and breathe.” -Laurie Pressman, Pantone Color Institutes VP. Disconnecting with the world and connecting with oneself can bring joy, peace and the ability to view life on a more positive note.
On top of it all, Pantone did our homework for us by creating a selection of 10 palettes pairing Greenery: http://bit.ly/2gE4JEE. This versatile, “trans-seasonal” shade that can be seamlessly paired with a variety of different neutrals, brights, pastels, metallic and even the two 2016 colors of the year, Rose Quartz & Serenity.

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.”
Expect to see this harmonious duo across high fashion, home interiors, accessories and design throughout the year. Independently or coupled together, Rose Quarts & Serenity will bring a sense of calmness and relaxation to any home environment.
