Live in the Pantone Colors of the Year
"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 a soothing sense of order and peace."
Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute
For over 50 years, Pantone has been selecting a color for each and every year as a forecast of trends in fashion and home decor. To make the color a truly integral part of "how a culture expresses the attitudes and emotions of the times", Pantone's color experts take into account a broad range of topics, from designers' preferences to international politics.
The color of 2016 is, for the first time in history, a pair of pastel shades: Rose quartz and Serenity. Pantone believes these colors reflect a shift in today's culture regarding the understanding of color and gender, which enables them to create an embracing, airy atmosphere for everyone.
To surround yourself in these two dreamy colors this year, try the following 6 tricks - all quick and easy:

Painting the wall is always an inexpensive way to bring on a dramatic effect.

And who says the paint has to always go on the wall?

A STATEMENT PIECE
Invest in a statement piece of furniture - or cover one with the color of your choice - to set the tone of your space.
And of course, that statement piece doesn't have to be a sofa.

Build a pink paradise.

Enjoy delightful pops of colors by adding accents to a room: poufs, pillows, chairs, candles, or even balloons. You name it.
