Pantone names color(s) of the year for 2016! For the first time, two colors won the title; Serenity and Rose Quartz. Described as “weightless and airy,” Serenity (a soft blue) is comforting and provides a calming effect. Rose Quartz (a light and warm pink tone) is a persuasive yet gentle tone that “conveys compassion and a sense of composure.”
Whether on their own or combined with other shades, the pairing of Serenity and Rose Quartz bring a feeling of calm and relaxation into the home environment. Rose Quartz encourages reflection on one’s surroundings, while Serenity provides a naturally connected sense of space.
Watch for these colors to soon be turning up in rugs and upholstery, Serenity and Rose Quartz also work well in paint and for decorative accessories like lighting.
