Trendsetters are you ready for this? For the first time in its history, Pantone, the world’s color authority, has announced two colors of the year for 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity. Want to work this colorful duo into your home in time for the New Year? Here’s everything you need to know about Rose Quartz and Serenity— the colors of the moment!
They blend to represent balance
Rose Quartz and Serenity are a feel-good color combination that can transform your home into a peaceful place! The blending of the warmer pink with its airy blue counterpart has soothing qualities and a light, stress-free feel. Pantone hand-picked these shades as way to help us identify harmony in our turbulent and changing culture.
They’ve inspired the industry
If you want your wall color to coordinate with your nail polish and your handbag, this is the trend for you! Both Rose Quartz are Serenity were spotted in several fashion week shows this past September, including Chanel! As fashion, beauty, and home decorating trends continue to echo one another, it’s guaranteed that this color craze will continue to influence the industry and inspire personal style as it gains popularity.
They’re a break from the bolds
While we couldn’t get enough of past colors of the year, like Marsala and Radiant Orchid, their statement-making character was more suited for bold splashes throughout the home. On the softer side, Rose Quartz and Serenity are starting points for a complete color scheme. These sister shades are a pastel palette with the perfect balance; they won’t wash out the room or overwhelm it with color.
