For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016.

Rose quartz is a pretty pale pink and Serenity is a muted blue hue.  Pantone says “Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times”.

For ideas on how what to pair these colors with in your wardrobe, see Pantone’s site on Rose Quartz and Serenity Color Pairings, and check out some of our pins on Pinterest.
