It’s that time again. You know, that time when Pantone announces its Color of the Year for the coming year and I comment on the ridiculous, over-the-top verbiage they use to describe it. But this year is different. Yes, the text still gets ridiculous, stepping way out there on evolving society and gender fluidity, etc., but this time they’ve named two colors instead of one, and I love it. Or them. Or the blend. Or something. I’m not crazy about pink, but once it drifts into roses, lavenders, lilacs, and blues, I’m hooked.
Rose Quartz and Serenity. And Pantone did get one thing right. The colors convey tranquility and serenity, things I constantly seek but especially appreciate right now, given the news in the last week and the general chaos of the season.
