    Rose Quartz And Serenity Blue For 2016

    By Marie Mouradian, December 3, 2015

    Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue are Pantone 2016 color of the year!  Pantone, the leading authority on color, made the announcement early this morning.

    It’s twins!  This is the first time Pantone has chosen two colors to share the spotlight.

    This is a softer take on color for 2016 and I LOVE it!

    Pink is my signature color.  Rose Quartz is very close to the blush pink in my blog heading and the background design.

    Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue are meant to be used in conjunction with one another.

    The Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute describes Rose Quartz and Serenity as “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”.

    Homeowners often tell me they want their rooms to be warm, inviting and peaceful.

    We are looking to our home to be a secure and calm respite away from the modern day stresses of the world.

    That’s what your home should be. A place to be at ease and be nourished by an inviting environment.
