They're not just pink and blue They are so much more than that! But whooo woulda thunk?
According to Pantone, the color experts:
"As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.
The prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity also challenges traditional perceptions of color association.
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."
Personally, way back when, I used to think that only certain colors "went together" and that certain colors would NEVER look good in the same room or even on the same planet. But, thank goodness, after years of experience of working with colors, I now know that almost any colors work well together - it just depends upon how you use them.
What colors have YOU seen that looked surprisingly well together even though you didn't think it was possible?? Or what group of colors made you feel a particular way IE: tranquil, nervous, excited, or happy?
