Pantone’s 2016 colours of the year – Rose Quartz & Serenity

And for the first time in Pantone’s history, they have chosen the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz (a warm pink) and Serenity (a cool violet-toned blue that evokes a beautiful bunch of hydrangea).

A response to the zeitgeist, the combination is both warm and embracing and cool and tranquil – an antidote to the stresses of modern life.

“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,” says Pantone.

We love the combination and while it could easily slip into girlishness, pair it with touches black and copper or silver metallics to keep it looking clean and modern.
