Every year, the Pantone Color Institute selects a Color of the Year that reflects what’s taking place with color in our culture. The Pantone Color of the Year serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude that reflects right now.

Introducing The 2016 Pantone Color of the Year

For the first time, Pantone has introduced two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity, as the Pantone Color of the Year 2016. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute says, “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 as a soothing sense of order and peace.”

Mezuzahs in the Pantone Color of the Year

 We’ve recently added two exciting new colors to our mezuzah offering at Apeloig Collection: Light Pink and Baby Blue—which bear a striking resemblance to Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Artists and interior designers have long understood how color can dramatically affect moods, emotions and feelings. The color selection from Pantone influences designers and artists in all industries, from fashion to interior design. If you pay close attention, you’ll soon see products in Rose Quartz and Serenity popping up on shelves and in windows, or as your browse your favorite catalogues.

If you believe in the power of colors to affect your mood like we do, consider placing a mezuzah in Light Pink or Baby Blue in your home to invite peace. We all have hectic lives complete with plenty of day-to-day stresses. That’s why when we arrive home after a busy day, many of us seek moments of mindfulness and well-being. The mezuzah on our door welcomes us when we return, protecting us and reminding of us of the peace waiting for us inside.

We hope our new mezuzahs inspire peace and tranquility in your home.
