2016 Pantone Color(s) of the Year Mimics the 80’s
For the first time ever the design world has been gifted with not one but two colors of Pantone Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz and Serenity. When I saw the 2016 Pantone Color of the Year (which is not a single color but two colors in harmony), I was quite pleased! Why? Because when was the last time you saw dusty pink (Rose Quartz) and pale blue (Serenity) together? Yep, you guessed it…the 80’s! Just goes to show you that styles and colors always seem to find a way to come back.
The image below was pulled from the Architectural Digest Archives and clearly shows how the new Pantone colors were used back in the 80’s. I love the soft blues and pinks but also love the pop of darker shades of pink and blue used throughout the room. No longer is the pink and blue only relagated to bedrooms and nurseries. This Image below is an excellent example.

The two colors are meant to symbolize a societal movement and a “unilateral approach toward gender equality and fluidity.”
I had to add this bedroom in. Look how adorable it is. I love this IT! Pink is always in style for girls no matter what age you are in my opinion! Perfect for this year’s color and style trends.
