Rose Quartz and Serenity, Panton colors 2016

in Color Inspiration
 
This year the Panton Colors of the Year are Rose Quartz 13-1520 and Serenity 15-3919 (click here to see the 2014 Radiant Orchid, and here to read about the Panton Queen’s Color Guide ).
The reason for this choice is expressed on the Pantone website: “as consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. 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.”
I am really fond of pale pink and I often use it in my projects for walls.
To celebrate these tender colors (even if they picked two colors which makes me think they couldn’t agree on one) I want to publish a photo from House and Garden I have had in my archive for ages and I love.
