2016 Pantone Color Of The Year

2016 Pantone Colors of the Year
 I am obsessed with the Pantone color of the year...each and every year. I always tell myself I am going to do SOMETHING with the the Pantone color of the year. Alas...I usually fail miserably. So this year, I'm not going to promise big Pantone type projects or features. I am going to simply share the knowledge and let you decide how you are going to use it.

So, what is the Pantone color of 2016? Pantone decided to tip the entire color wheel and fashion industry on its head this year and through us for a loop. They chose...two colors for 2016. I know right? Whaaaaa?

I'm pleased to introduce you to Rose Quartz and Serenity. Is it just me or do they look more like baby pink and powder blue?

Pantone describes their decision to choose two colors as this:

"For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. 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." 

And for the curious crocheters and crafters, a history of Pantones.


How will you use the two new colors for 2016 Pantone's colors of the year? Or will you? I'd love to hear from you in the comments.

Rock the hook,

Don't forget to rock with me over at Facebook, Pinterest and on Ravelry.
