For the very first time Pantone has announced two colours as its Colour of the Year for 2016. Rose Quartz, a soft pink, and Serenity which is a tranquil blue have been chosen as two colours to show how a warm and a cool shade can work together in creating a calming feeling.

 

The colours have been chosen by experts who have looked at the ways we seek escape from busy modern day life and how we want to surround ourselves with serenity. The soft and gentle tones of these colours allows for easy blending and this is a colour trend that can easily be translated into our homes. Take a look at these ideas for inspiration…
