The global color authority in fashion and interior design, Pantone, announced (about two weeks ago) their color of the year for 2016. For the first time, they did not choose one, but two shades: Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue.
In a news release, Pantone explained that the combination echoed a growing trend of challenging traditional perceptions about color association. Pantone described the colors as “a harmonious pairing of inviting shades that embody a mindset of tranquility and inner peace.”

And while Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue are the predominant 2016 Spring colors, there are another eight top shades that will be ruling the home and fashion world for the year 2016. The first four are still soft and calming: Lilac Gray, Iced Coffee, Limpet Shell and Peach Echo
So if you are not color-shy and you go for the non-ordinary, jump right on the unexpected bolds that Pantone explains “are only for those that love to push the envelope.”
