Pantone selects TWO colours of the year for 2016

For 2016, Pantone have only gone and announced a blend of two shades as their pick for ‘colour of the year’ – yes, they can do that.

The colours in question are Rose Quartz and Serenity – a combination of warm pink and cool blue which, according to Pantone reflects “connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace”.

Both tones together may seem like an odd choice, except if you’re throwing a baby shower, but these candy shades seriously pop when used in a colour blocking style. Rose Quartz and Serenity scream springtime and each colour works beautifully for warmer weather accessories and homeware.

The blush pink hue of Rose Quartz echos the neutral nude shades that we loved last year and the sky blue of Serenity is uplifting and fresh.

Here are 7 Etsy finds from local sellers, reflecting the two new hues…
