It’s that time of year again when Pantone reveals their favorite color, but this year they couldn’t choose just one…
Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year… Rose Quartz and Serenity.
I have to admit, when the Pantone Colors of the Year for 2016 were announced, my first thought was baby shower gone wrong, but after researching different ways to incorporate the colors into everyday spaces, I’ve come to think otherwise.
Sure, these colors are soft and pretty, and I would totally try them as a nail color, but I wanted to see how they’d work in interior spaces?
How cute is this retro farmhouse kitchen featuring our star colors? I’m thinking the key here is prominently featuring only one of the colors and using the other more subtly.
I’d totally trade in my refrigerator for this Serenity blue beauty!.. Except it would never hold enough food for a family of 6. Someday I’m going to own a SMEG… mark my words!
Rose Quartz and Serenity are perfect accent colors for this rustic farmhouse look. I love how the two pair with shades of grey, and that swagged light… amazing! (Umm how come my unmade bed just looks messy and not cute like this?!?)
So this is a slightly more muted version of rose quartz, so it’s more my style and that wall… holy cannoli Batman, I love it!! Adding that to my DIYs to try list for sure.
For a more sophisticated look, these muted shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity work beautifully with the rich wood and black accent lamps.
Not ready to paint your walls Rose Quartz or Serenity? No worries… Try painting a door for a pop of color, without the commitment! By the way, I got new short, Hunter boots for Christmas from Eric and I love them! I didn’t even ask for them specifically… The man did good!
These pendant lights are so fun and you could easily use IKEA pendants and paint them (the shape is almost identical to these) Then, update your kitchen table with some Rose Quartz and Serenity colored mis-matched chairs.
Wall art and throw pillows are easy ways to incorporate Pantone’s colors of the year. How simple would it be to DIY this art and it still looks awesome!
Here are some nature-inspired color palettes featuring Rose Quartz and Serenity.
So have I convinced you to let some Rose Quartz and Serenity into your home?
