Serenity & Rose Quartz named 2016 'Color of the Year'
Pantone naming the color of the year is an lovable end-of-year tradition, albeit not necessarily far-reaching in effect. Although one can argue about its significance, there is no doubt that the announcement somehow became part of the festive period, the time of reminiscing about the past and guessing about the coming year. Well, one (or rather two) thing is sure about 2016: that it will be spent wrapped in pale blue and dusty pink colors. For the first time ever, the Pantone Color Institute decided to name two hues as the ‘color of the year’, entitled Serenity (the blue one), and Rose Quartz (more obviously the pinkish tone).
Pantone justified their decision with several statements. From the visual point of view, the two colors are a harmonious pairing complementing one another, blending into each other to form a whole. The idea of blending has a metaphoric quality as well: the Pantone committee was inspired by the blurred gender lines of our age, and traditional baby blue for boys and baby pink for girls are now presented as not only interchangeable, but fuseable as well. Lastly, the hues are deliberately calm and serene, especially if compared to 2015’s full-bodied Marsala. Next year’s colours intend to bring tranquility and inner peace to our busy modern-day life with their meditative, calming quality. If relying exclusively on Pantone, we surely have a peaceful year coming for us - let’s hope it will be true.
