This year, two colors were chosen for the Pantone Colors of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. These soft colors will bring a soothing sense of peace, order and wellness to your home. According to Pantone.com, “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.”
So how can these colors be incorporated into your home? Missy Sinsel of award-winning interior design firm Carlyn & Company provided this tip: “Since these colors are on the softer side, to cut the sweetness of them, I would recommend pairing them with navy or gray which gives more interest to your palette.” Visit pantone.com for more ideas on color pairings.
Missy added, “By using these colors in artwork, accessories, and pillows you can add instant color to your space while keeping larger furniture pieces more neutral.”
When redecorating a room or two in your home, it is important to ensure that the rooms still flow with the décor in the rest of the home. EYA’s Design Consultant, Ann Hulen, noted: “While you can have different colors and textures throughout the home, it is important that the entire home have the same feel and works as a whole.”
What about if you are purchasing a new construction home? Should color trends influence the finishes you choose? Ann added this piece of advice: “When it comes to selecting finishes in a home, I always recommend choosing what you like and what makes you happy, versus choosing from trends. Trends will come and go, but choosing what fits your tastes will bring you years of happiness.”
