Pantone Color of the Year

For the first time in history, the Pantone Color of the Year for 2016 is actually 2 colors! Rose Quartz (13-1520) and Serenity (15-3919). The only thing I think of when seeing these colors is cotton candy! I read that these two colors are supposed to be bring calm and relaxation but I think that might just be the case for a baby nursery. I can honestly say that instead of relaxation, it brings me anxiety over the possibility that the pastels from the early 90’s might come back!

What do you think of the new dual look for the Pantone Color of 2016? Do you like the colors? Do you like the fact that Pantone has strayed from their traditional selection of one Pantone Color of the Year?  Feel free to sound off in the comment section below!
