For the first time since the printing/colour company Pantone® have announced a 'colour of the year' for each year, 2016 is the first year that marks two colours for the year. Next year, the two colours are PANTONE 15-3919 (Serenity) and PANTONE 13-1520 (Rose Quartz). Both are pastel shades that blend and compliment each other. Serenity is a light pale purple hue, and Rose Quartz is a pastel pink hue.


The two colours balanace against stresses to promote security and well-being, a sense of order and peace. Rose Quartz is a warming colour, and Serenity is a tranquil colour. Expect to see these colours used in the world of fashion, interior design, and other design over the next year.

2015: Marsala

2014: Radiant Orchid

2013: Emerald
