Pantone 2016 Color of the Year

It's that time of year again! The awaited color of the year is announced by Pantone. To our surprise, its 2 colors for 2016! Say hello to Rose Quartz + Serenity! I am always stunned by the Pantone color choices for the new year. It takes me a minute to warm up to them. I'm sure these 2 colors will wow me very soon.

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."

Shoes, Dining, Thread + Alley
