Color of the Year

According to Pantone, the two colors that will stand out over the year are: "rose quartz" and "serenity". These colors were chosen based on a balance between the warm rose, and the cool, tranquil blue. So the idea is that the two complementary colors will inspire peace, serenity and a gentle love.

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."

Serenity: "weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us.  Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing a feeling of respite even in turbulent times. A transcendent blue, Serenity provides us with a naturally connected sense of space."

I searched for pictures where the two colors are present to help you to identify correctly the shade of blue and pink:

I loved the idea of the two colors blended and I'm already looking in my stash for beads in these colors. Beadaholique (HERE) and Firemountaingems (HERE) published a guide with the swarovski crystals and gemstones colors that have the same shade of blue serenity and rose quartz.

And since combining colors is not an easy task for me, I googled for color palettes that blend well with rose quartz and serenity. This one is from Pantone:

And the palettes below I found at the Design Seeds website:
