Color is such an important part of how we express ourselves. It has the power to transform our homes, define our wardrobes, and even influence our moods. And we're all constantly on the lookout for the next big thing when it comes to living colorfully.
Every year, designers and tastemakers await the announcement of the "Color of the Year" from Pantone, the global authority on color. Pantone's color of the year is no arbitrary decision -- it's a result of careful deliberation over which hue best matches current world issues and feelings. Pantone also surveys the styles shown at New York Fashion Week and beyond to discover the season's most important color trends, revealing a palette to complement the year's dominant hue.
For 2016's color of the year Pantone chose Pink Quartz and Serenity — two enchanting shades blended together to create the ultimate sense of color harmony. The warm glow of Pink Quartz paired with the tranquility of Serenity's soothing blue makes for an unforgettable 2016 lived in color.
These calming yet energizing tones are universally appealing and translate easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors. Designers and tastemakers are already looking forward to pairing Rose Quartz and Serenity with the rest of the hues in Pantone's spring 2016 color report: Snorkel Blue, Fiesta, Limpet Shell, Lilac Grey, Iced Coffee, Green Flash, Buttercup, and Peach Echo.
With such a dynamic and expressive group of colors on the menu, the possibilities for styling your home or wardrobe are endless. Enjoy exploring -- we're sure you'll have your most stylish spring yet!
