2016 Pantone colour of the year

I look forward to finding out what Pantone will name colour of the year, every year. I don’t always love what’s selected but I do enjoy seeing more and more of that colour appear in our day to day lives and enjoy watching home decor and fashion trends incorporate it as the year moves forward. Sometimes it can be fun to track trends.

This year Pantone selected a blend of two colours for their colour(s) of 2016, rose quartz and serenity (http://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2016)


I expect we will see lots of this combination come the Spring and Summer. When I first saw it, I instantly imagined a flow-y gauzy summer dress blowing softly in a warm summer breeze. If only I knew how to design clothing!

I have to say that I love this combination and plan to challenge myself to use these colours in some upcoming jewellery designs. This combination makes me feel calm, what does it inspire in you? We’d love to hear from you in comments!

While it’s wonderful to be featured in other people’s treasuries, it’s also a lot of fun to curate your own.
