[soliloquy id=”11413″]

Pantone Color Institute experts recently announced its 2016 colors of the year—Rose Quartz and Serenity. The pale pink and almost baby blue palettes are calming and lend themselves beautifully to home décor as well as fashion, housewares, packaging, and other industrial uses.

According to Stephanie Pierce, senior manager of the design studio for MasterBrand Cabinets, “One of the most exciting things about Pantone’s new color of the year is that they have seen fit to double it up. This being the first time they have done this, it bodes well for the positive thinking that color is returning in full force.”

Pierce says, “For a few years running our industry has seen white, gray, and creams leading the way. Not surprisingly, though, blue is starting to come back as a strong contender for accent color. With the multiple ranges that blues play in, from soft and serene to moody-dark tones, blue is very appealing to most people in both bathroom schemes and general home décor. Pale shades such as Rose Quartz and Serenity provide opportunities for subtle color inclusion to accent those core colors like white, khaki, and gray.”
