Rose Quartz & Serenity
Pantone 13-1520 & Pantone 15-3919
For the very first time, the much anticipated Pantone Colour of the Year is the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity!
“As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent.” – Pantone
Pantone selected two colours for the year of 2016 explaining that they can appear solo or as blended shades. They search the globe for influences when picking colour of the year – looking for colours that express moods. They take a range of categories into account from fashion and home decoration to sports and entertainment.
Pantone say that 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.
We’re sure we will see this trend incorporated in all areas of design, with the pastel shade already popular in fashion & make up! One of the coolest images to represent it so far is by Victor Quiononez, Werc & Man One.
They are graffiti artists and will use the two colours in a series of art works which will be shown in Miami, Venice Beach & New York!
