Every year, Pantone, the global authority on colour, chooses a new colour shade that will influence interior design, fashion and beauty.
And for the 2016 the nominated colors are Rose Quartz and Serenity. It’s the first time Pantone has picked two colors of the year since it debuted the designation in 1999.
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.
Whether in soft or hard surface material, the pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity brings calm and relaxation.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director at Pantone Colour Institute can tell us more about the combination of these beautiful pastel shades:
“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.”
“There’s a calmness, but there’s also a happiness to it,” Pressman said.
We picked up some ideas for you on how to introduce and combine these two colors in your home.
