Pantone Color of the Year 2016

Happy New Year & Welcome to 2016.

With the start of a new year we welcome in the NEW color of the year as well! 2016 brings us Rose Quartz (13-1520) & Serenity (15-3919). That’s right, two colors this year! Rose Quartz of course being a beautiful shade of pink and Serenity countering it by being a beautiful baby blue shade.

Pantone colors are chosen based off of the swing cultures take each season and the direction the Pantone Institute sees society moving towards. Since fashion and design have blended colors recently to be more gender neutral blue and pink will play off each other nicely. Take a peek around your community and you’ll see these colors popping up in everything from home decor, clothing, design and marketing.

What ways will you work these colors into your own businesses? We’d love to see new projects come through using these tones!

Happy Designing from your team at Allegra!
