Lo and behold, here sits the Pantone Colour of the Year 2016 Rose Quartz & Serenity. In stark contrast to the Marsala, a reddish brown of 2015, the pastel winner(s) have been a favourable triumph amongst the many cults of mermaids, unicorns and general pastel addicts (including Vintage Licks) across the internet.
Every year Pantone champions the colour that has woven it's way through various scenes of culture that year and the one that has served most our expressions of mood and attitude. And for the first time in history, we have two that top the list:
"Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace."
