Pantone’s Institute choice for color of the year 2016 is an emotional one, based on two of the greatest needs of humanity in the current period. For the first time Pantone chose as reference color, the result of the blend between two pastel colors: Rose Quartz and Serenity.
One of the criteria by which the institute chooses the color of the year is the social component. Thus, according to social trends and needs, they chose a hue that merges the colors of compassion and inner tranquility.
Also, in the recent years due to a necessity of cancelling psychological labeling and standardization, a desire that urges us to see the world as a whole and not as a process of individuation occurred. The trend is that pink and blue to no longer automatically be associated with masculine and feminine; thus this combination of the two.
Certainly, in this case also, nature shows us things humanity rediscovers now, continued to exist in the environment all this time.
One of interior design styles which contained all the while the combination of these two shades is Shabby Chic style, which is defined by calm, reconciliation, relaxation and warmth.
