The 2016 Pantone Colour of the Year | Rose Quartz & Serenity

Posted on January 25 2016
It is that time of year again, when wedding bloggers everywhere are talking & writing about the Pantone Colour of the Year. So what exactly is this "colour of the year" thing? Since 2000 Pantone has selected a Colour of the Year based on "the colour influences which best define the global zeitgeist." Trends in film, art, politics, technology, i.e. in every area of culture, are sought out, unravelled, and blended together to select the Pantone Colour of the Year. This year's colours are Rose Quartz & Serenity.
Rose Quartz & Serenity are the colours painted all over this page. Their names denote a sense of cheeriness & a sense of calm: two adjectives any bride would happily carry into her wedding day. So if you are a bride-to-be searching for that perfect wedding colour that is feminine, elegant, and yet playfully lovely—Rose Quartz & Serenity might just be the colour scheme for you! Whatever the case, take a moment to gush over the loveliness that is Rose Quartz & Serenity.
Courtesy of Pantone, you can peruse a handful of colour pairings with Rose Quartz & Serenity. (Our favourite of which is #6, mixing in a last year's uber-romantic & earthy Pantone Colour of the Year: Marsala!)
