Pantone Color of the Year 2016

So, the pastel trend has been around for a little while now but it’s safe to say that it’ll be going nowhere soon. Last month, and for the first time, Pantone announced an interesting blend of TWO shades for the Color of the Year 2016. Hello Rose Quartz and Serenity!

 Ok, let’s be honest, our initial reaction was probably the same as yours – insert comments about nursery’s, new born babies, Easter, hospital waiting rooms & the 80’s. BUT the warm, gentle tones of Rose Quartz supposedly balance out the cool, calm, airy hues of Serenity to create something quite soothing! And we could all do with a bit of that in our lives, right?

 And that’s not all, this combination of colors denotes the social movement towards gender equality and fluidity. It all sounds pretty positive and gets the thumbs up from us. Byeeee Marsala! Check out the gallery below for our top picks!
