Pantone Color of the Year 2016: ROSE QUARTZ and SERENITY

For the first time, Pantone®, the leading global color authority, has named two shades as its color of the year for 2016. The pastel pairing includes ROSE QUARTZ, a gentle shade of pink, and SERENITY, a calming tranquil blue like the name suggests.

The colors are a nod to equality reflecting our changing attitudes towards typical gender stereotypes.
In many parts of the world we are experiencing a 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, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judge and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.~ Pantone
These softer tones are quite a departure from the bold colors of the past few years. They are meant to demonstrate balance and wellness, order and peace.
