It’s 2016 and time to reveal the Color of the Year as determined by Pantone Color Institute.
Before we do so, do you remember the controversial choice in 2014 of Radiant Orchid?
How about Marsala in 2015?
Well this year we get a special surprise…..not just one color but a blend of two colors. Say what?!
Without further ado I present to you Serenity and Rose Quartz.
Here’s what Pantone has to say about their two picks:
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. 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.
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.
The prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity also challenges traditional perceptions of color association … In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.
