What Are The Pantone Colors for 2016?


Pantone relates everything that is taking place in our culture that symbolizes a mood or the entirety of attitude – the commonality amongst continents.

“In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.” – via Pantone Color Institute.


Rose Quartz and Serenity is the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. This is the first time that they chose two colors for a year.

Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.

Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
