Introducing Pantone Colours for 2016

Each year Pantone chooses a colour to be representative of the colour for that year. For 2016, Pantone have decided on a blend of two colours (a first) to represent the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. According to Pantone these colours have been chosen to “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.”

If you don’t know what Pantone is, it’s a corporation that have developed a colour matching system known as PMS (Pantone Matching System) which dictates exact colours via a universal code.  Used mostly in graphic and print design, the Pantone colour of the year still works to set trends across fashion and interior design. Read more about Pantone here.

So how can you make bring these ‘on trend’ colours into your home? Well since these are softer versions of brighter shades they are relatively easy to work with whether you want to add them in a big (wall paint) or small way (cushions). They pair perfectly with muted neutrals like blacks, whites and greys which is a fairly common aesthetic of late. We also love intertwining these colours into a minimalistic Scandi look.

The most important thing to note with these colours is they work well exclusively, but together, they are a match made in heaven. They have been derived to sit cohesively in a single space, seemingly contrasting colours working in harmony.
