A Blend of Rose Quartz and Serenity is Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year

For the first time ever, Pantone is using 2 colors as a blend, or gradient, as its color of the year. The colors are Rose Quartz — a powdery pink, and Serenity — a tranquil blue. The color(s) are calm and peaceful, and also bring a glimmer of optimism.

I have noticed that over the last few years the colors have gone from strong and bold to soft and easy. I think this is a good sign of things to come!
