the Pantone Color of the Year 2016 (with a Twist)

It's that time of year when Pantone comes out with its color of the year! I'm giddy every year to hear what they have chosen. This color is seen in the world of fashion and interior design the entire next year. It's like getting an early Christmas present! 

Some of you out there may think I'm a little cray for getting so excited...but I'm sure there's a few of you out there that get it.

Pantone has really thrown us for a loop this year. In recent years, they have chosen a bold beautiful color. Not this year. There were a few hints that it would be a lighter hue because of the top ten 2016 colors chosen in September. Now this is the kicker - they didn't pick just one color...but two! It's the first time ever. Maybe it's the artist and stylist in me that is always looking at color combinations and dreaming of new ones.  I love what the marriage of two colors can do.

DRUMROLL....

So what is the 2016 color? Rose Quartz & Serenity!!!! You're asking...yeah, but what does that mean in every day language? Basically, it's a rosy pink and a cooler, light blue. 

See what Pantone says about the combination below:

Pantone recommends mixing this combination with other mid tones such as green, purples and rich browns and all shades of yellow and pink. Silver will also look great paired with it.

STYLIST DISCLAIMER: As usual...I need to say something. These colors won't be loved by everyone, nor should they be worn by everyone. I'd love to help you out if you're not sure of your color palette. But, the good news is that you can tie these colors into an outfit or your home.
