We always look forward to the day Pantone announces its 'Color of the Year,' what about you? This year was no exception and it was also a HUGE surprise because unlike 2015 - hello Marsala - there are 2 colors chosen for 2016! As you can see above, the two shades by Pantone are Rose Quartz and Serenity. (pic above via Pantone)
These beautiful pastels that will look gorgeous and fresh on you this spring, but they're also calming in the bedroom. The light airy shades have us ready for a power nap already. Check out Heather of StyleMindChic where we first read about the Pantone announcement and she's already discovered the handbags and must-have fashion items in both Serenity and Rose Quartz.
But it's the description on the site that had us swooning for these 2 special shades. According to Pantone.com...
What spirit or emotion do these colors used in tandem convey?
'Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing a feeling of respite even in turbulent times. When together, the two parts are greater than their whole, evoking an easy, calm, embracing and restful mood.
Inducing feelings of stability, constancy, comfort and relaxation, the seamless union of Rose Quartz and Serenity creates balance in a chaotic world by providing the perfect counterpoint to the fast-paced, fractured and hurried lives we live.'
In light of everything going on in the world, we couldn't agree more with this statement. Are you excited about these new colors or do you prefer dark and edgy shades like in recent years including 'Emerald' and 'Marsala'?
PS -Rose Quartz is strikingly similar to our signature satin pillow case shade
