Pantone has officially announced Pantone 15-3919 Serenity and Pantone 13-1520 Rose Quartz as their Pantone Colors of the Year selection for 2016. This is the first time that two colours have been chosen and, to be honest, I don’t know why they bothered.
Pantone claims that this color combo is a harmonious pairing of inviting shades that embody a mindset of tranquillity and inner peace.Sounds like a load of old rubbish to me.
Mary Ward from the Sydney Morning Herald’s Lifestyle section, says “Pantone’s colour of the year is great if you’re decorating a nursery in 1952”.
I do agree – but then pastels aren’t my thing at all. But really, with all Pantone’s Colours of the Year you just need a touch to keep up with the latest trend. I don’t expect many people will be rushing to paint their living room walls in baby pink or baby blue, but a cushion, a rug …. no actually, I will never use pink or blue except for a nursery which is the only place Pantone’s 2016 colours belong.
