Pantone chose two colors this year.  They look pretty much like pink and blue but their names are much more complicated. Rose quartz and Serenity are the official names. The colors made use of gender blur as inspiration relating to fashion.  The choice of these colors impacted other areas of design. As gender becomes less important and more equal, this generation’s concerns do not lie in judgement. The generation is not worried about being typecast and expresses themselves through color, pink and blue, if you wish to call it that are statement colors as to what is going on around us.  The colors are a celebration of equality!



Whether in soft or hard surface material, the pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity brings calm and relaxation. Appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, the engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Add in silver or hot brights for more splash and sparkle. I can’t wait to use these colors!  They are compatible with nearly all skin tones and have a playful nature to them.
