Starting this year, I'm going to share my favorite blog posts, pictures, and anything that I could think of on a weekly basis. It's going to be random, which is really exciting because it could be related to fashion. food, crafts, or places. And it's going to be personal, as I'm going to pick out my top favorites!
To start off with this week's favorite is this year's color of the year.
Color experts over at Pantone just announced the Colors of the Year 2016! And this is the first time ever they come up with 2 colors!
Rose Quartz and Serenity
As for the reason why they choose to have 2 colors for this year, unlike the traditional 1 color, according to Pantone,
"In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has, in turn, impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer's increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage."
Brilliant! And this year's colors, must I say my most favorite one since 2010's color, which is Turquoise.
So now you know that shades of blue and pink are very close to my heart.
And to give you some idea of how these 2 colors are being used, I've created a mood board for this week's favorites!
