Trending: Color of the Year 2016
Pantone, the color institute that is known worldwide for being a leader in color across all industries, has named two colors as the Color of the Year 2016. This is the first year that they have awarded two colors the coveted award. The winners: Rose Quartz and Serenity. This was a shocker since colors of past years have always been bold, not pastel.
The blending of Rose Quartz and Serenity invoke a serene experience. The warm tones of Rose Quartz, a soft pink, and the calming blues of Serenity balance each other, creating a harmonious outcome. They have found that no matter how these two colors are presented, on soft or hard materials, they create a calming effect when combined. Also, there are many other colors that compliment them. Meaning that they are very flexible and easy colors to bring into designs.
Home décor, furniture, room color themes and fashion will all see these colors at the forefront of design in 2016. Get on trend with this peaceful color combination by planning your next project with them in mind. Some find that working with pastels a daunting task. No worries! Mid tones can be introduced into your design such as browns, yellows, pinks, and greens. They complement the colors of the year wonderfully.
Bedrooms, living rooms and bathrooms would be absolutely gorgeous in either one of these colors. Paint the walls Serenity and use accents of Rose Quartz on pillows, throws, drapes, etc. or vice versa. If you desire a bolder color in other areas of the home, opt for a darker shade of the color.
