On-trend landlords might like to look to Pantone’s Colour of the Year when it comes to updating their rentals in 2016.
For the first time, Pantone anointed two colours for 2016 – Rose Quartz (warm-toned pale pink) and Serenity (cool-toned mix of cornflower blue and periwinkle) – making a departure from vibrant colours of the past.
The global colour authority chose the hues based on a move by consumers towards “seeking mindfulness as an antidote to modern day stresses” and the pairing provides a “soothing sense of order and peace”.
Historically, Pantone’s colour of the year has been incorporated into fashion and home décor, with the colour being seen across a spectrum of designer offerings through to mass market products.
Pantone’s Leatrice Eiseman said this year’s offering of the two colours “makes for a perfect combination in the home”.
Style conscious landlords can incorporate the colours into painted or hard surfaces or soft furnishings to attract the most fashion-savvy – and, hopefully, most reliable – of tenants.
