Pantone 2016

In an interesting turn of events, for the first time ever, Pantone has chose two colors for Color of the Year 2016. To be more accurate, they have chosen a gradient as the color of the year. The gradient is a combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity.

These two colors are a soft contrast to last year’s bold Marsala. That deep, rich, bold earth tone. This year’s choice, has a calm, peaceful flow to it. Something the world definitely needs, in these harsh and combative times.

This year’s choice for color of the year made me very happy, as I was already leaning toward a similar color palette for my summer collection. I guess I am more in tone than I thought!


“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.”
