“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.”1
“Rose Quartz and Serenity is a symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.” 1
2016 is the first year that Pantone® has ever released two colors as the Color of the Year.
“Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”
“Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.”
“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... Making Rose Quartz & Serenity the perfect pair to be the 2016 Colors of the Year.”
