Rose Quartz, Peach Echo, Serenity, Limpet Shell, Lilac Gray, and Iced Coffee. Sound like familiar colors? If none of these ring a bell, it’s part of Pantone’s plan in their introduction of the Top 10 Colors for 2016 – they want to be innovative and visionary. According to InStyle’s article on Pantone’s choice, “The colors are part of their semi-annual color report for the fashion industry, which is compiled by a group of color experts around the world who have synthesized all the hues used throughout the forthcoming collections and merged them with the color trends they have been tracking globally.”
InStyle’s website gives an overview of the new Pantone colors, which you can read by clicking this link: See the Top Colors for Spring 2016.
Behr has welcomed such hues like Emperor’s Silk and Pagoda. Behr has introduced its own list, claiming that their motive is to make great atmosphere: “Our 2016 Trends address the importance of color in constructing stimulating environments. You’ll see how you can use varying hues, intensity and lightness levels, patterns and textures to establish your own sensory-rich space.” From Modern Mint to Symphony Gold, you can read all about it here: Behr’s Color Trends 2016.
