Pantone Color of the Year - 2016 - Rose Quartz 13-1520 and Serenity 15-3919
Pantone has officially announced its Color of the Year for 2016 and there are two; Rose Quartz 13-1520 and Serenity 15-3919. Reminiscent of precious stones, a peaceful sunset or the paint colors used in Jack and Jill bathrooms they should find their way into many home painting projects. They possess a sense of balance, tranquility and relaxation much needed in busy lives. Rose Quartz is great for a bathroom, nusery, bedroom or guest room wall paint color. It would lighten and soften a room painted a darker color by using it as an accent paint color on one wall. Serenity as a paint color could be used in a boy's nusery, bedroom, home office or den. Bring the expanse of an azure blue sky indoors by painting a room with Serenity. If not appropriate for the wall in your paint color scheme then Serenity will bring interest and respite when used as a ceiling paint color.
The Pantone announcement states, “Whether in soft or hard surface material, the pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity brings calm and relaxation. Appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, the engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Add in silver or hot brights for more splash and sparkle.”.
“A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”.
“For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”.
“Joined together Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooloer tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”
