Living in a high paced and hectic world is having its effect on color trends as evidenced by Pantone’s recent Color of the Year 2016 announcement showcasing a move towards less bold and more subtle color hues. They indicate an approach to our living environments that offer respite from our demanding lifestyles and stresses.
Introducing for the first time two shades that blend well, Rose Quartz (Pantone 13-1520) and Serenity (Pantone 15-3919) set the tone for a softer, more tranquil and well-being approach to life and home.
The two shades also remind us of warmth and tranquility working together with less concern over traditional gender lines. Rose Quartz and Serenity raise the importance of bringing a sense of calm and relaxation regardless of season of life, good and hard times. Coming home to this sort of environment becomes a place of refuge from the world, which is extremely unpredictable right now.
The Color of the Year 2016 easily works with other mid-tone shades from greens to browns and yellows to pinks.
