Pantone shade of the year – Rose quartz and serenity

Pantone Inc. is a company situated in New Jersey. They have a technology that predicts accurate communication of color and color systems. Each year they release a ‘Color of the year’ report which is inspired from automotive, fashion, interior design, trade show, and technology. They perform deep research into how a color plays a role in one’s life and how it impacts the mood of the person. They also study in detail how the color is accepted widely among an audience. The company arrives at a conclusion after consulting with representatives across the globe from various nations. Usually, these representatives are silent partners.

Based on the report by Pantone Inc., these colors are used in fashion, cosmetics, and even industrial design. 2012 was the color of Tangerine Tango, 2013 saw Emerald, 2014 was all about radiant orchid, and 2015 was about Marsala (an earthy and rich red). After many years of vibrant hues, it is going to be softer and gentler this time with pastel colors. The company hasn’t declared just one, but two beautiful color combinations – Rose Quartz & Serenity.

According to their company report, Rose Quartz is a very gentle yet persuasive tone which spells compassion and composure. Serenity, on the other hand, is airy and floats just like the sky above us. The combination of the two brings a sense of calm even under turbulent times.
