PANTONE has selected it's 2016 Color of the Year. Well, two colors actually. For the first time, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity - are chosen as the 2016 Color of the Year.As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent.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.Whether in soft or hard surface material, the pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity brings calm and relaxation. Appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, the engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Add in silver or hot brights for more splash and sparkle.

There you have it. What do you think? Can you see yourself adding a little Rose Quartz and Serenity to your life in the New Year? Here are a few suggestions for bringing it into your home: Marmoleum Fresco in Blue Heaven and Real in Horse Roan
