2016 Color of the Year

Each year Pantone Color Institute names a “Color of the Year.” This year they named two!

Rose Quartz and Serenity. What do you think of them?


Pantone was apparently feeling very zen as they chose the colors for this year. Anticipating that consumers will be looking for an “antidote to modern day stresses” in 2016, they went with two colors that are soothing, orderly, and peaceful.


Well what is a home-owner to do with the new colors of the year? Decorate their home with them, of course! Pantone explains that Rose Quartz and Serenity are appealing in all finishes and easily join with all “mid-tones” (think greens, purples, and browns).

Thinking of adding Rose Quartz and Serenity to your home decor? Check out these great examples:
