One of the biggest trends we hope to see in 2016 is the use of more color! We love the tonal and monochromatic look but we are ready to funk it up a bit and bring in some bold patterns and eye catching colors. We were thrilled to see that Pantone is serving us a double dose of inspiration this year with their unexpected choice of not one but TWO colors for 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity.
In the words of Pantone: “Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.”
It’s no surprise to see the use of pink, we have seen this dusty shade of rose pop up all over the place from furniture to textiles, this sophisticated hue is no longer kept for the little ones. Pantone also described the colors as “a harmonious pairing of inviting shades that embody a mindset of tranquility and inner peace.” We love the way the pastel colors blend to resemble a fading sunset. To get in the spirit of Rose Quartz and Serenity we created the mood board above to inspire us to use these colors in our own designs.
We look forward to seeing how these colors will be incorporated in design and fashion for 2016!
