Every year we eagerly await Pantone’s announcement of their colour of the year. For 2015 it was Marsala – think our shade Mulberry.
For 2016 Pantone have unusually chosen two shades, which they call Rose Quartz and Serenity, and we are delighted to say both are in our colour palette. They are new shades Bluebell and English Rose. Although they are both light to mid tones they work really well together.
We have taken our design Carnelian, which was originally in Cream and Anthracite – a very stark and graphic mix - and reknitted it in Bluebell and English Rose. The new combination is much subtler and the shades work together almost like a shot silk, beautifully harmonious.
The comforting warmth of English Rose and the ethereal cool Bluebell echo the current trend for mindfulness and peace. Pantone also tell us that the two shades together challenge traditional colour combinations. Wow! We think they look pretty fabulous together.
Bluebell launches on Thursday 28th January along with another delicious new shade Fennel, we hope you love these shades as much as we do.
