This coming year Pantone chose not one but 2 colors for 2016 to be their "Color of the Year"....

PANTONE Color Standards
for Creating with Rose Quartz & Serenity

Lee_Eisemann Pantone Color of the Year 2016 ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY

So I'm taking this as a pastel Ying and Yang color year.  
I love the purple-y blue and paired with it the pink is o.k. too...
What do you think?  Honest opinions...
Does it remind you of nursery colors?  

Do you think you'll be following suit and incorporating these colors into your art in the coming year?  I've already heard several companies are getting ready to share some new lines featuring these colors. Not so sure I'm ready for them..  


  1. I'm not a pink person but since I have some pink quartz paper I'll probably use it like for birthday cards for the granddaughters. I do love the Serenity color and would definitely buy and use that one. I'm not much of a color trend person. Definite nursery colors.

  2. I'm not a pink person - but combined with the purple one it works. I would be going more with the purple than the pink though.

  3. I am not a pink person, the lavender one is ok...would look pretty combined with gray or silver. I guess I just like stronger colours. These say "baby" to me.


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
