Pantone Color of the Year Roundup

BY Jen

Every December, Pantone releases their “Color or the Year” for the upcoming year. Being a designer, I am always interested to see what they choose. For this year, they actually picked two colors: Rose Quartz (a soft rose pink) and Serenity (a cool blue with a hint of purple).

I always find it fun seeing where the colors pop up. We will probably end up seeing them in many aspects of design (print, fashion, home) this coming year. Here is a roundup of some Rose Quartz and Serenity items I found. If I didn’t already have a working KitchenAid mixer, I think I would need this pink one.

Pantone Color of the Year Roundup

1. Pink Woven Pillow from Target  |  2. Spring Eden Candle from Anthropologie  |  3. Pink KitchenAid Mixer from Amazon | 4. Happiness Planner from Anthropologie | 5. Watch from Urban Outfitters | 6. Essie Pret-a-Surfer from Amazon | 7. Tarren Towel from Anthropologie

From the Pantone site: “Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate 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.”

I’m loving the calm, airy vibe of the colors. What are your thoughts on the color choices?

    I’ve never been a big pink person but I do love the rose quartz, especially with gold. Blues are always my favorite and this shade is fabulous!

      I’m totally the same. Pink in general, isn’t my color but certain shades (usually more neutral pinks) I like.

    Now I need to buy that mixer…

    I’m in love with Serenity – it really is super calming.

    All of these products look great and those colors are absolutely beautiful! I am definitely looking in to that nail polish. Also, my kitchen mixer is ancient and I am dying over that pink one!!
