For the first time ever, Pantone – the authority on color, provider of colour systems and leading technology for accurate communication of colour – this year nominated a two tone ‘colour of the year’. The colours – Rose Quartz; “a warmer embracing rose tone”, and Serenity “cooler tranquil blue” – reflect the current consumer trends for calmer, soothing tones.
Cooler Tranquil Blue
We think our TUSTING blues, particularly Honeydon Blue, reflect these beautiful hues, and there may even be some gorgeous warm pinks making an appearance soon for autumn and winter (hint…).
Pantone says: “As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colours that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. 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.”
