Pantone’s 2016 Colors Of The Year Are So Chill
Pantone’s Color of The Year is here, but this time it’s two colors, perhaps intended to soothe our troubled, frazzled, stressed-the-fuck-out minds into calm.
Meet Rose Quartz, “a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure” and Serenity, “weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”
Pink, blue. Blue, pink. Baby’s breath, spring sky. Blush, ocean. Soothing. Nice. Zen. Chill. Relaxed. Like being in a weird meditation chamber or a float tank. Like the colors you’d use to decorate a room for a very cool baby. Like a soothing oasis of colors that are kind of boring. Like living inside the “Hotline Bling” video for the rest of your life.
Shh. Yes. Warm. Good night.
