The 2016 Pantone Colors of the Year

"Joined together Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace"

-Leatrice Eiseman Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute

This is the first time in Pantone's history they have ever released 2 colors for the year. For those of you who may be wondering why this particular company gets to choose the colors for 2016, let us help out with that. Pantone is the word-renowned authority on color. In 1963 they created a unique and innovative system for matching and communicating colors to help solve that pesky problem if finding that exact color match. They have since then been perfecting their craft and well, what they say goes and for good reason too. 

At Prim, we love seeing what they come out with and use it as inspiration. We already have a few pieces that fit within this color scheme and can't wait to set up arrangements using the 2 of them together. Usually the more colorful furniture items are paired with a neutral of cream, white or even a light gold sofa. Take Pantone's advice for 2016 and blend colors together. Take a look as some of our pieces below and start thinking about how you can use shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity for your wedding, event or party!
