2 Top Colors for 2016 -Pantone

The Pantone Color Institute has chosen two shades as the “Top Colors of 2016”. This is the first time that two shades were simultaneously chosen as Color of the Year. Say hello to Rose Quartz and Serenity:

While the muted pastel shades seem to look like the kind used for baby nurseries, the institute explains that the two colors were chosen because they are "a harmonious pairing of inviting shades that embody a mind-set of tranquility and inner peace."

“With the whole greater than its individual parts, joined together Serenity and Rose Quartz 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.”

-Leatrice Eiseman, Executiv Dirrector Pantone Color Institute.

The annual Color of the Year forecast by the color institute is heavily anticipated by the interior design, housewares, graphic design, and fashion industries. The selected shades are often used in new product lines and home designs. Since this is the first time that two shades were simultaneously chosen, Ms. Eiseman says that businesses have an opportunity to make extra combinations.

The Pantone Color Institute says that Rose Quartz and Serenity will give a living space a feeling of calm and relaxation. The shades can be used in paint, rugs, upholstery, bedding, and decorative accents at home. Matching tableware and home accessories will also be available in the market very soon.
