For the first time ever, the design world was gifted with not one, but two for the 2016 Pantone Colors of the Year . This time around, the color authority chose the delicate Rose Quartz and the calming blue Serenity, taking a “unilateral approach to color [that coincides] with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity,” as the company said in a statement.
The cotton-candy hues might have been relegated to the nursery walls in decades past, but today, Pantone says that the open exchange of information online “has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.” And while the warmth of Rose Quartz and soothing nature of Serenity may still be perfect for bedrooms, the hues can be used to beautiful effect in other areas of the house. So, if you’re looking for rooms with color schemes in the soft tones, here you have a selection of the best Rose Quartz– and Serenity-colored rooms.
Metallic copper tones work brilliantly with pinks, neutrals, white and other hues like rose quartz! Beautiful and versatile and the perfect color to modernize any home, are you ready to show your home design?
Whether in soft or hard surface material, serenity blue brings calm and relaxation. Appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, it joins easily with other mid-tones including grays, greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Add in silver or hot brights for more splash and sparkle.
A softer take on Pantone color for 2016: As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. 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. Aren’t these the things you want to bring into your interiors?
