Every year, Pantone's Color Institute chooses a "Color of the Year" as a way of trend forecasting and capturing the global zeitgeist.
Since 2000, Pantone's chosen a single color. Last year's selection was earthy, moody Marsala.
Today, for the first time ever, Pantone announced not one, but two colors for 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity.
AKA Pantone 13-1520 & Pantone 15-3919, respectively. Say hi, Pantone 13-1520 & Pantone 15-3919!
Pantone said in the official release that Rose Quartz is "a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure." Meanwhile, "Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times."
