Double Take: Pantone Names Two Colors – Rose Quartz and Serenity – as the 2016 Color of the Year
For the first time in its history, Pantone has chosen the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity – as the PANTONE® Color of the Year.
“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,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute®.
Evolving perceptions of color association and gender influenced Pantone’s choice this year. With new generations less attached to traditional perceptions of gender and more open to equality, people are attracted to fluid ways to use color.
Pantone LLC is the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems and leading technology for the selection and accurate communication of color across a variety of industries. The PANTONE® name is known worldwide as the standard language for color communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer.
Rose Quartz and Serenity are ideal for communicating a sense of comforting calm in your whole home remodel, a respite from the everyday stresses of modern life. Pairing the hues enhances a sense of mindful balance. Rose Quartz and Serenity are perfect for textured accessories such as rugs, bedding, and throws. With their peaceful and airy qualities, we also see the colors as excellent choices for a tranquil master bathroom or bedroom.
