Pantone®, the global color authority announced, for the first time, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year.

According to Pantone, 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.

The prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity also challenges traditional perceptions of color association.
