The Pantone Color Institute holds a secret two-day-long meeting in a chosen city in Europe where they invite representatives from various colour standard groups. At the end of their discussions, they come to the conclusion of picking a new Colour of the Year. When the Pantone Color Institute announced the Color of the Year for 2016, they’ve surprised us all with choosing two colours instead of one: Serenity and Rose Quartz. We’re going to focus on Rose Quartz and what to expect in terms of flowers and decor.

There is a trend where colour schemes are moving more towards softer palettes, and Rose Quartz fits right in, offering a warmer and feminine touch. It can be described as a dusky pink, with Pantone Color Institute calling it “… a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.” This soft shade works extremely well as a wedding colour theme, for example. Take a look at the inspiring options below.

This stunningly versatile shade can be used for interior decorating, parties, formal functions and other events too. In fact, Pantone Color Institute even suggests a combo of colour palettes to help incorporate the Rose Quartz into your home, office or event.
