Pantone’s color choices for Spring 2016

As every year I am going to share with you my thoughts on this year’s Spring color choices, directly from Pantone! Check out the 10 colors they chose for the upcoming season:

Please note “Limpet shell” comes twice. It’s only 10 colors.

Rose Quartz and Serenity are supposed to be the colors of the year. I must say I’m not very impressed with this year’s Spring color choices. All colors are pretty, don’t get me wrong, they’re just not really mine. I do love Rose Quartz and I can see it very well combined with Iced Coffee, Lilac Gray and maybe even Snorkel Blue. The colors I really don’t like at all are Buttercup and Green Flash – they’re not flattering on me.

Peach Echo is probably my favorite color of this chart, along with Lilac Gray and Fiesta.  Regarding the blues, I do like Snorkel Blue – even though I’m a bit afraid it might be too overpowering on me – however Serenity and most of all Limpet Shell are just too icy and light for me.

Pantone wanted to create a calm and serene palette of colors and I think they most definitely did it – keeping with the pastel trend of the previous seasons. I can see many of these colors being extremely popular this Spring.

What are your thoughts on this Spring’s Pantone color choices? Which is your favorite color?

      Ich finde die Farben schön, ich finde nur sie stehen mir persönlich nicht wirklich…aber wer weiss, vielleicht ändert sich das, ich werde ja meine Haare nächste Woche heller machen 😉

    Rose Quarz und Serenity sind genau meine Farben, da ich ein Sommertyp bin stehen sie mir auch wirklich sehr gut!
    Ich wünsche dir noch einen wunderschönen Dienstag!
    Ganz liebe Grüße an dich

      Ich werde meine Haare wieder Heller machen, vielleicht stehen mir die Farben dann doch…trotzdem finde ich das es all sehr “pastel” Farben sind die nicht alle Typen stehen werden..
