You’re first to know: The 2016 Color(s) of the Year

Anna Young

Every year we eagerly wait for Pantone to announce their Color of the Year, and today is the day! But this time they are throwing in a bonus – TWO Colors of the Year that BELONG together. 2015 was a turbulent year for many people, and this color selection from Pantone for 2016 is intentionally meant to be soothing – the words Pantone uses to describe them: Balance, calming, wellness, compatible, duality, tranquility. 
The colors, Rose Quartz and Serenity, are true to their names. Combining the warmness of rose and the cool, calming softness of Serenity blue makes for a intoxicating color combination found in nature in some of the most beautiful places.

Inspired yet? We are.

Incorporating these colors into the home

These colors make perfect sense for a baby room as they are the traditional “baby” colors! If you are expecting, staying on trend by using this color combination makes it easy to prepare for your 2016 baby. You can stock up on BOTH pink and blue regardless of the gender, and be confident that your baby room will be adorable and enviable.
These colors aren’t just for baby! They can be used elegantly throughout the home as accent colors or as inspiration for any room.
