The colour company Pantone has for the first time crowned two colours of the year for 2016, a mix of pastel pink and blue shades as its Colour of the Year 2016. Serenity and Rose Quartz were chosen to reflect consumers seeking soothing colours.
The pairing of the pink and blue pastels marks the first time Pantone has chosen a blend of colours for its annual prediction.”Rose Quartz, a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure”, according to executive director Leatrice Eiseman.
