Color(s) of the Year 2016

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)
