Global color authority Pantone called out two colors for the 2016 edition of its ‘color of the year’ forecast. A blush pink called Rose Quartz and powder blue called Serenity. The pairing, according to Pantone, is part of a more unilateral approach to color – a commentary on the current societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity. Here we highlight 5 products that incorporate these calming hues.
