Pantone has deemed 2016’s Color of the Year as Rose Quartz and Serenity.
It’s their way of telling us to all chill out, I think.
I say that in jest but really when you look at the colors there is something very serene and calming about them. I am reminded of a sunrise when the clouds are just right in the sky and the early morning rays hit them just right. I saw that in the sky a few days ago while driving to work.
I told the husband I loved seeing the sunrise and/or sunset while driving to/from work. He said he was too busy driving to notice. I always notice, though, and love seeing the magical colors the sky paints when the sun is at the perfect place on the horizon. You never know what burning colors you’ll get.
Or calm ones.
The writer in me also hears those color names and thinks, “Possible character names?” Maybe. 🙂
Shutterstock has a blog post devoted to these colors. There is something almost magical about them. Check them out. They are beautiful.
