Live in the Pantone Colors of the Year



"Joined together Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate
an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone
and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness
as well as a soothing sense of order and peace." 

Leatrice Eiseman
Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute


For over 50 years, Pantone has been selecting a color for each and every year as a forecast of trends in fashion and home decor. To make the color a truly integral part of "how a culture expresses the attitudes and emotions of the times", Pantone's color experts take into account a broad range of topics, from designers' preferences to international politics. 

The color of 2016 is, for the first time in history, a pair of pastel shades: Rose quartz and Serenity. Pantone believes these colors reflect a shift in today's culture regarding the understanding of color and gender, which enables them to create an embracing, airy atmosphere for everyone.
