First new Pantone colours for 2016

Pantone has unveiled a mix of pastel pink and blue shades as its Colour of the Year for 2016.

The pairing of the pink and blue pastels marks the first time Pantone has chosen a blend of colours for its annual prediction, which is unveiled at the end of each year and to foreshadow coming trends.

Rose Quartz, described as “a warmer embracing rose tone” and Serenity, which is a “cooler tranquil blue” were apparently chosen to reflect consumers seeking soothing colours.
