10 Fresh Hues From Pantone’s Fashion Color Report Spring 2016
Digested from “Spring 2016 Colors Transcend Norms”
Apartment-community owners and managers seeking event or renovation inspiration should look no further than the colors in Pantone’s Fashion Color Report Spring 2016. These gender-neutral selections provide a quiet stability that simultaneously inspires reflection and cheerfulness.
The company — a longtime leader in color — drew hues from the pink, orange, red, blue, green and yellow families and selected two solid neutrals to develop this sunny yet introspective palette:
Pink – Rose Quartz
Orange – Peach Echo
Red – Fiesta
Blues – Serenity, Snorkel Blue and Limpet Shell
Green – Green Flash
Yellow – Buttercup
Neutrals – Lilac Gray and Iced Coffee
The softer tones (Rose Quartz, Peach Echo, Serenity, Limpet Shell, Lilac Gray and Iced Coffee) contribute a component of serenity, warmth, softness or clarity to help balance the palette. These would be great in common areas to create an inviting, soothing atmosphere where residents can relax.
The more vibrant hues (Buttercup, Fiesta and Green Flash) provide cheerfulness, excitement and openness to inspire exploration and an escape from monotony and routine. Use these as accent hues or in areas of activity, such as a fitness center or a kitchen.
