Who else is loving the softer take on colour for 2016? For the first time, PANTONE has chosen to blend two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity are as the PANTONE Colour 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, 2016
PANTONE describes Rose Quartz as a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
We have always loved this beautiful pastel palette in our artworks, in particular these two shades that are reminiscent of a soft dusky sky in gentle, calming hues.
To celebrate PANTONE’s Colour of the Year 2016, we have curated a collection of hand paintings that reflect the warm and cool tones of Rose Quartz & Serenity:
