Color(s) of the Year 2016

Pantone has once again selected Color of the Year or actually two colors this year. Colors of 2016 are “Serenity” and “Rose Quartz“.

PANTONE 15-3919 Serenity (#91A8D0)

PANTONE 13-1520 Rose Quartz (#F7CAC9)

For the first time Color of the Year is a blend of two shades that are supposed to represent tranquility and inner peace. I think Pantone has selected these traditional boy/girl shades to avoid upsetting the peace of mind of any gender. Previous Colors of the Year have been bold and strong and at least I have liked them better. Color of 2012 “Tangerine Tango” is my personal favorite.

PANTONE 17-1463 Tangerine Tango (#DD4124)
