Calm. Gentle. Reassuring. And in our view, at Kleinfeld Paper, balanced—always an indicator of good design!
These are just some symbolic interpretations of Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year, which for the first time ever is a blend of two colors: Rose Quartz and Serenity.
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.”
– Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute
To the visible eye, this year’s color choice could be:
- Either one of the two colors, Rose Quartz OR Serenity
- A variation on the two colors
- The blending of both colors together
This color connects with many different styles in wedding invitations. Rose Quartz and Serenity have the ability to work as neutrals, as primary stand-alone colors, or as accent colors in a wedding invitation suite. From fashion to flowers to food, and of course wedding invitations, see how this year’s color choice has already inspired the Kleinfeld Paper wedding collection:
