For the first time, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity are chosen as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016.
Here’s what Pantone has to say about their two picks:
As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.
Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
Use these hues as accents in your interiors or bravely splash them about, either way Rose Quartz and Serenity will soothe your spaces.
