By February 4, 2016 No Comments

For the first time in it’s 16-year history, the 2016 Pantone Color of the Year is actually two colors – Rose Quarts and Serenity. The soft, pastel hues are a soothing compliment of each other and according to the color authority, “Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”
