Hi lovely friends! I hope that 2016 is off to a wonderful start for you. I was sooo sick over New Year’s Eve and the first of the year that I feel like I am getting a late start on things already. Isn’t that just life sometimes??
So, those of you who follow design trends know that Pantone (THE authority on color) announced its color of the year in December. For the first time ever, it has selected two colors. They are two complementary colors called Rose Quartz and Serenity.
Many people might find them very pastel and too sweet to use in their homes, but see how they are used in the spaces below. They might just change your mind and have you dreaming of these bubble gum hues.

They need not be limited to children’s rooms and work with a variety of color pairings. I like how they are paired with browns and dark teals to tame them down a little bit.

There are ways to incorporate these distinct colors in more subtle ways. No need to go and get a can of pink paint! These accessories can help you add that pop of pastel without a major commitment.
What do you think? Yay or Nay? I think they are fun and am probably going to use a variation of rose quartz in my daughter’s big girl room. I definitely like them better than last year’s wine-colored Marsala.
Until next time.
