2016 Color of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity (1 of 2 Parts)

Happy Holidays, everyone! We look forward to what is head of us as we usher another exciting and fun-filled year for weddings and special occasions. Pantone, the authority on color trends, has recently released the color that will rule over fashion, decor and designs for 2016. It will all be about rose quartz and serenity. This is the very first time that Pantone has identified two colors for its annual announcement. Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute, describes the combination as " 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. "

This year's choice is a welcome development challenging the traditional perceptions of color association as it transcend cultural and gender norms. For this article, we are featuring wedding elements using these two colors separately and combined.  

Rose Quartz (Pantone 13-1520)

Rose quartz is a mineral with a pale pink to red rose hue. Its subtle tone conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Rose quartz provides a respite from busy and strong visual elements of day to day living. It is a great choice for summer and spring weddings. While this color works well on its own, it can also be paired with Peach Echo, Lilac Gray, and of course, Serenity.
