After wearing a serenity blue blouse this weekend (see this post) I was inspired by Pantone’s colors of the year. Last year, the color was Marsala, a beautiful wine red. This year, Pantone chose two colors, which is out of the ordinary. The colors are Rose Quartz (a light pink) and Serenity (a periwinkle blue). The choice of the colors was meant to incorporate the warmer inviting red tones, as well as the cool and calming blue tones. You can read more about Pantone’s process and intentions here.
I personally love these two colors. I’ve curated my favorites from around the web in the slideshow below.[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”8″ gal_title=”Serenity and Rose Quartz Picks”]
What do you think of the two colors this year?
Oh yes! I love blue! 🙂
These are really cute picks!! Love it!
I’m pretty sure I have that blazer… And I don’t think I’ve ever worn it. Maybe I’ll pull it out of the closet tomorrow.
I’m so happy they chose a blue this year! My favorite color! Love your round-up for the year
Me too! And I love that it is called serenity.
Those earrings are so pretty! I’m loving the colors of the year this year.
Cool post! I’ll bet that the neuroscience behind color selecting and pairing organizing is fascinating
