Pantone Color of the Year 2016 - Rose Quartz and Serenity

So another year and this time its two colors that are virtually married to each other - Rose quartz and Serenity. Love the names too. Its a far cry from the ridiculous Marsala. Don't know if the color got anyone's attention last year, but Rose quartz (13-1520) and Serenity (15-3919) have been getting that attention since the past 3 years , just that they won the Oscar's in 2016, Leonardo just might win today ;), yet to see that

 The executive Director at the Pantone Color Institute says 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. Must say, I quite agree, a bit too much poetry for thought, but I agree that they spell a sense of order and peace. 
I also loved the 3 color palettes these colors generate



All in all - good choice Pantone! Finally...;)
