Posted on January 6, 2016

It’s that time of year again. Pantone has announced their Color of the Year for 2016! This year’s selection is especially exciting because for the first time Pantone selected not one, but two shades: Rose Quartz, a warm and subtle pink, and Serenity, a cool and serene blue.

These soft colors mark a definite change from last year’s dark and brooding Marsala and also from the previous two year’s bright and vibrant Radiant Orchid and Emerald. You can read more about why Pantone chose this year’s two pastel shades by visiting their website. Below you’ll find great Toledo Lucas County Public Library resources that are sure to provide inspiration.
