Pantone Colour Of The Year 2016

Pantone Colour Of The Year 2016

2015 saw Marsala emerge as the face of Pantone’s colour of the year, its rich, earthy tones fitting perfectly in the home and garden. Ideal for creating a cosy corner of your garden or even a Moroccan theme by adding a warm throw for chilly evenings of some rich, scented candles for a warm glow during dinner.

Every year for the last 16 years the Pantone Colour Institute releases its colour of the year which predicts the colour schemes we will see for that year in fashion, home decorating and graphic design. So what does 2016 have in store for the Pantone colour of the year? Logo Design Guru have predicted that Pantone’s colour of the year for 2016 will be Deep Peacock after carefully reviewing their colour choices over the last 16 years.

Were they right?

They were pretty close with choosing a blue tone, but Pantone threw a curve ball this year by blending two colours of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. They’ve taken a softer approach this year after several years of bold colours.

When you look at previous Pantone colours of the year you can see that the 2016 winner is significantly different, appealing to those who like lighter, pastel colours.
