Decking Your Patio in Pantone's Colors of the Year

Every year, Pantone Corporation announces its list of the Top Colors in Fashion and Design for that particular year.  2016, however, is a bit unusual in that Pantone dubbed TWO colors, Rose Quartz and Serenity (pale pink and pale blue) as its top colors in Spring's Fashion Color Report. 

If you're not in love with pastels, never fear - there are several bright, saturated colors on the Top 10 List for Spring 2016.  We'll get to those in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, here are a few of EmpirePatio's beautiful products in a similar hue, which we call "Slate."
