Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems and leading technology for the selection and accurate communication of color, across a variety of industries. As part of the enterprise’s traditions, this organization selects the Color of the Year. For 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity won.

“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue”, writes Pantone.

“Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure”, explains. “Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times”, adds.

These two colors took the title from “Marsala”, which was the winner during 2015.

It’s the first time that two shades are chosen as PANTONE Color of the Year.

PANTONE suggests that these two colors have brilliant chemistry, in case you want to use them together: “Whether in soft or hard surface material, the pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity brings calm and relaxation. Appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, the engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Add in silver or hot bright for more splash and sparkle”.
