For the first time, the colour of the year is a blend of two shades. Rose Quartz is a warm rose tone, blended with Serenity, which is a cooler tranquil blue. Together they create balance and instill a soothing feeling of connection and peace.
Many would describe Rose Quartz like a serene sunset, flushed cheek, or budding flower. The colour reminds us to reflect on our surroundings even when life gets crazy during the summer months.
Serenity is like the blue sky, weightless and airy. This transcendent blue has a calming effect, which provides us with a naturally connected sense of space.
Blended together, the two colours look like a perfect bubble gum sunset. We are realizing that the world is not black and white. Pantone has recognized that when picking 2016’s Colour of the Year.
Serenity is shown in a nail polish here. Essie came out with their shade called “Who is the Boss” a softer take on the classic blue.
These colour trends will be seen from fashion to home furnishings. This new palette is offered in a variety of lip, cheek, nail, eye products to paint, towels, and other home décor items for summer 2016.
