Colorize Your Year: Pantone 2016

For the first time, Pantone chose the blending of two shades as the Pantone Color of the Year: Serenity, a periwinkle blue, and Rose Quartz, a pastel pink.

These beautiful colors bring a calm mood. “Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler serene blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace”, says Leatrice Eisenman, executive director of Pantone Color Institute.
