This year we’ve honored the sultry, earthy hue dubbed as “Marsala”, but for 2016 the Pantone Color Institute decided one color wasn’t enough and actually named two beautiful shades as the colors of the next year.
The company known as the world’s leading authority in terms of color and shades decided the mix of two shades: Serenity, a baby blue, and Rose Quartz, a dusty rose, should be the hot thing to wear in 2016. This was the first time Pantone has picked two shades for its color of the year and.. what can we say? We totally love their decision!
Rose Quartz is described as a persuasive and gentle shade, which projects compassion and a sense of composure, while Serenity is described as a weightless and airy color, resembling the blue sky, which will make you feel relaxed even when you’re stressed out.
The mix of these two shades will serve as an antidote to the busy life, for people who are seeking mindfulness and well being. The color selection was also decided with gender equality and fluidity in mind, also representing a mood and an attitude for a generation that has less concern about being judged or typecast.
