Pantones Colours of 2016

At the end of 2015, Pantone changed up its Color of the Year tradition with not one, but two hues for 2016: Rose Quartz, a sophisticated pale pink, and Serenity, a delicate light blue.

Pantone Rose Quartz   Pantone Serenity
This calming duo is Pantone’s response to the increasing stress of modern life — an encouragement to slow down and soften, but also an acknowledgment of changes in our society. These shades traditionally symbolize masculinity and femininity, but in a changing landscape of traditions and identity, Pantone urges us to find new meaning.

While these shades are most reminiscent of springtime flower buds and sweet sundresses, their combination is reflective of a stunning sunset at any time year.
