Each year, as part of the trend forecasting process, Pantone declares a Color of the Year
, which is then used to help guide designs and consumer products. For 2016, Rose Quartz, a soft rosy warm blush tone and Serenity, a cool tranquil airy blue, were selected as the Color(s) of the Year-- yes, two shades this year! According to Pantone, these colors offer a balance along with a soothing sense of order and peace. As a fan of pastels, especially soft blush shades, I am beyond happy (nerd much?) that these gorgeous shades are the colors of the year. Points for Pantone!
Above are a few of my favorite Rose Quartz and Serenity picks-- how adorable are the lace up flats? This pretty blush shade totally reminds me of ballet slippers, and the watch is just too cool for school. Love!
What do you think of this year's color(s) of the year?
