Pantone colour of the year 2016

Thursday, 10 December 2015


The colours of the year for 2016 has been announced and we are mad for them. Yes, not one but two shades have been named: Rose Quartz and Serenity. Rose Quartz is a gentle yet persuasive tone and conveys compassion. Serenity is peaceful and light like the sky above us, according to Pantone.


We think these pantones are much easier to wear and incorporate than the previous ones like Marsala. They look great together too, so get creative.

    Love pastels! And the fact that they have a warm and cool colour makes it so much easier to apply to wardrobe, makeup, interior even!
