For the first time ever, the Pantone Colour of the Year blends together two shades! The colour authority chose a combination of soft blue Serenity and blush pink Rose Quartz. If these colours are any indication, it looks like we’re in for a peaceful 2016!
“With our hectic lives and the frenzy around us, there is an increasing demand for tranquility,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute’s executive director. That’s just what these hues deliver: Rose Quartz evokes a sunset, budding flower, or flushed cheek, while Serenity conjures an expanse of bleached blue sky. Worn separately, they don’t have the same power of calmness as they do when worn together. “Wearing both of these hues at once is like returning to the weightlessness of your youth,” says Eiseman. “The combination of a cool and a warm color brings a sense of balance.”
We can’t wait to see this perfect pastel duo in stores!
