Interior Design Trend Report 2016
Pantone has kicked off the official forecasting season, revealing its 2016 colour(s) of the year.
The two tranquil hues chosen were a light pink known as Rose Quartz (PANTONE 13-1520) and a soft pastel blue, Serenity (PANTONE 15-3919).
Like all trends, the two colours are designed to reflect culture/societal change, with Pantone responding to a society that reflects gender equality, compassion and respite in tough times.
And trends do count, particularly for businesses looking to anticipate consumer movement and respond accordingly with timely products and services.
