Pantone Color of the Year 2016: ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY

Pantone selects an annual color as a snapshot and expression into what they see taking place in culture. In a surprise move, this year Pantone selected two colors to represent the "gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design."

This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression.

Rose Quartz and Serenity represent traditional hues of pink and blue taking on a more fluid identity in a world being shaped continually by a new generation unwilling to let color define identity.

Here are some ways to feature a twist on the traditional into your home with Rose Quartz and Serenity.
