New year, new colours

Safari Fusion blog | New year, new colours | Pantone Colour of the Year 2016 | Rose Quartz + Serenity
Happy New Year and welcome to the Pantone Colour (or should we say Colours!) of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity.

"Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times." Pantone

Both colours work well in a variety of finishes, matte, metallic and glossy and easily mix with other colours such as greens, greys, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. For added punch combine with hot brights or silver for a little sparkle.
