2016 Color of the Year


And This Year’s Color Is…

Pantone sets the trend each year for color, and everyone from paint companies to furniture and appliance makers to textile companies pay attention.

It allows artists and manufacturers to know that if they include the chosen colors in their products, they are likely to match other goods that the consumer may purchase.

This year’s color is actually two colors — Rose Quartz (a pale pink) that blends into Serenity, a complementary pale blue. You’ll see more of it on the runways, at the shopping malls, in the fabric stores — especially as spring arrives.
