Pantone 2016: Variations on a Theme
Posted by Dakota Stones to Articles
Rose Quartz and Angelite (Serenity) are our official Pantone stone colors of the year. Now we are expanding on this theme with new ds stones for 2016!

"...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."
                 - Leatrie Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute

The Pantone color theme of 2016 represents balance, order and peace - a look that can be achieved by mixing and matching almost any variation of serene blue/greens and warm pinks. We had
Jessica make up some samples with
various ds stones to show how easy
it is to get this balanced, beautiful look. Plus, we want you to remember that variations are a great way to expand creativity...you don't always need to color inside the lines!
