As always this is an exciting time in the design world when Pantone announces their color of the year for 2016. Marsala was the colour of the year for 2015 and I was so looking forward to a new year and a new colour and I was really hoping it was a blue of some sort (because I love all blues)
It was a great surprise when the Color authority Pantone for the first time anointed two colors of the year for 2016. Rose Quartz and Serenity, which are shades of pale pink and soft blue.My first thoughts take me to a nursery or baby showers filled with pink or blue cupcakes but according to Pantone, these shades, they say, were chosen to convey rosy warmth and tranquillity. “Rose quartz is not baby pink,” says Leatrice Eiseman who, as executive director of Pantone’s Color Institute, oversees the company’s annual choice of Color of the Year. “It doesn’t have that wimpy feel.”
Considering all that has happened in the world over the last month I think these colors are a perfect choice. They offer a sense of gentle calmness which is very welcoming right now.
Here are a few beautiful rooms that incorporate these colors for you to enjoy. I am in love with these rose gold pendant lights!!!
I love the blends of colours in this room below. Blues, pinks, yellows and reds….Gorgeous!
More amazing rose gold pendant lights and I love the touches of pink.
Serenity is perfect for the bedroom and love the pink jars and flowers.
Soon you will see these colors everywhere from home decor, to fashion to make up. If you want to incorporate these colours into your home do so by adding them as accents like throw pillows or flowers or a gorgeous carpet. I think I am going to have to hunt down those rose gold pendants!
