Pantone Colour of the Year

Every year Pantone release a colour (this year there were two) of the year. You will notice these colours appear in all sorts of ways from fashion to homewares, they have an influence on so many things.

This years choice of Rose Quartz works perfectly for the Floristry Industry. We are blessed with so many pale pink toned flowers. My favourite would have to be the Stock, they are delicately perfumed, a beautifully long lasting flower and so versatile. They are perfect for a pastel bouquet and work well with whites and greens of all sorts of foliage.  Other choices may be a Carnation, Chrysanthumum, Lisianthus, Veronica, Statice, Hydranga and Sweet William.

We will see this trend also influence wedding themes and what more perfect choice than an abundance of pale pink pillowy Peonies. The softness of the tone sits beautifully with lace and gives a very romantic feeling to any girls dream day. 

So explore the beautiful world of Rose Quartz, whether it be an accessory for your home, yourself or in the next arrangement of flowers you give. Take your que from this years Pantone colour of the Year.
