I admit that I look forward to seeing what the “colour of the year” is going to be and then ignoring it completely and wearing what I always wear lol, but I do love looking at the new colour trends and then thinking how much nothing really changes and everything that goes around comes around again – which is awesome for someone who never throws anything away. Ever. So here we are for apparently the first time, that a blending of two colours have been chosen for colour of the year – I’m not sure how that works exactly, presumably we go with that bit in the middle where the two colours meet and that’s that. Separately I don’t mind them, the Serenity (blue?) is gorgeous, the Rose Quartz is not my favourite. Or if you want a better explanation, here is what Pantone have to say about it:
A softer take on color for 2016: For the first time, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity are chosen as the PANTONE Color of the Year
As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. 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.
