Pantone Announces Two 2016 Colors of the Year

Get ready to decorate your space with soothing and charming pastels


From the richness of Marsala this year, it seems like 2016 will be dominated by pastels and soft shades. For the first time, Pantone has chosen not one, but two colors of the year—Rose Quartz and Serenity

In an article by the Wall Street Journal, the shades were chosen to "convey rosy warmth and tranquility." According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone's Color Institute, these two colors are often seen together, making it a natural pairing. She also hastens to add that Rose Quartz is not "baby pink," stating that "it doesn't have a wimpy feel."

"It makes for a perfect combination in the home," she adds. Having two colors of the year gives homeowners the chance to experiment and get creative when it comes to combining pieces. And if you think about it, it would be fun to mix-and-match pillows, soft furnishings, and other accessories in these charming colors!

What's your take on these choices? We can't wait to see how homeowners and design professionals would apply Rose Quartz and Serenity at home and in different establishments!
