 Rose Quartz.  Pantone's color pick for the co-color of 2016

The soothing, calming nature of colors in the Spring collections are led by PANTONE 13-1520 Rose Quartz, a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.  Like a serene sunset, flushed cheek or budding flower, Rose Quartz reminds us to reflect on our surroundings during the busy but lighthearted spring and summer months.

Pantone, owned by Washington, D.C.-based Danaher Corp., has a system that helps manufacturers define color precisely. Every year, the company polls décor and fashion designers, as well as manufacturers and retailers, on what colors they intend to use, led by Ms. Eiseman, to pick the color of the coming year. Pantone will tip off some marketing partners so that they can create products, such as Sephora cosmetics and Keurig coffee makers, that use the colors.
