We’ll admit it. When Pantone announced its color of the year for 2016 – actually, the colors Rose Quartz and Serenity – our first reaction was, “Huh? Pink and pastel blue?”
But we’ve warmed to the idea, which was exactly the idea the color experts at Pantone had.
“As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. 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.”
Soothing. Peaceful. Warm. Tranquil.
We love it.
Here are some wonderful (and soothing) examples of how these colors work in the home:
