PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR ~ 2016

This year, Pantone decided to gift the design world with two Pantone Colors of the Year for 2016. The color authority chose the delicate Rose Quartz and the calming blue Serenity and while this news certainly isn’t the newest story on the block, I thought these images of interior spaces show just how beautiful these colors are when used thoughtfully and tastefully. Visions to Inspire~~

Living Room Nashville

I am swooning over this Living Room of interior designer Ray Booth and television executive John Shea in Nashville, Tennessee.

And this lovely bedroom in Napa Valley, California designed by Jeff Atlas.

From the Pantone Fashion Color Series, Pantone offers ways to update your home for spring. By incorporating Pantone’s Spring 2014 picks you can prep your home for warmer days ahead. We’ve already met Radiant Orchid, Pantone Color of the Year 2014, so let’s take a look at the rest of the chosen shades. Whether you add just a touch here and there, or makeover your space entirely in these colors, these hues usher in spring dreams while chasing away winter doldrums.

The cool, relaxing Placid Blue is a soft pastel invoking the sky, this hue of blue brings a sense of openness and peacefulness to any room. A hint of gray softens the blue and ushers in a serene coolness without working an icy chill.

Just Looking

If you’re not ready to commit to the color, you can add just a touch of the color with a pillow, a throw, or curtains in Placid Blue.

Placid Blue is an obvious choice for a baby boy’s bedroom — but this easy DIY wall design would make a graphic statement in any room.
