DesignTeamHeadshots-KatieGehringHello friends, Katie here. When Pantone Institute announced the two colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity, I was surprised. After years of Tangerine, Emerald, Merlot, and even Radiant Orchid, Rose Quartz and Serenity seemed like a bit of a departure. Here’s how Pantone explained their dual choice.   pantone-color-of-the-year-lee-eiseman-quote source At first, the colors made me think of the 1980’s Miami Vice or even Hello Kitty’s Little Twin Stars. In the first few months of 2016, I have seen these colors pop up more and more from fashion to home decor and it’s truly a color combination that is:
