Pantone Color of the Year 2016: Thursday Things

It’s the eve of the new year, and we’re all looking ahead to what exciting things 2016 will bring. Pantone, a leading authority in color technology and trends, recently announced the gorgeous Color of the Year for 2016. Introducing: Rose Quartz & Serenity! An unlikely and soft pairing, these two resemble a pink winter dusk transitioning into a blue night sky. These colors balance each other out, bringing feelings of intentionality and equilibrium. The official Pantone site says, “Joined together, 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.” This combination might not match everyone’s taste, but it certainly is thought provoking. Find our favorite products inspired by these colors below.
