5 Ways to Decorate with Pantone?s 2016 Colors of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity

Love Rose Quartz and Serenity, but don't know where to use them" Here's how to seamlessly work Pantone's 2016 colors of the year into your interiors.The post 5 Ways to Decorate with Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity appeared first on Freshome.com.

Pantone?s unveiling of its color of the year is always an exciting time for design fanatics, but 2016 is especially noteworthy because this year, the color authority gave us an extra surprise. For the first time ever, the company chose two colors: Rose Quartz and Serenity.Pantone?s decision was ?a symbolic color selection,? the company says, ?a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.? True to its goal, the shades Pantone chose certainly are an expressive pair.Since both Rose Quartz and Serenity are bold enough to stand on their own, they pop when put against neutrals, especially whites and grays. They also pair well with midtone shades of greens, browns, and yellows.If you?re curious about how to effectively incorporate these hot hues into your home, you’ve come to the right place. See below for five ways to decorate with Pantone?s 2016 colors of the year, and check out our gallery for even more inspiration.1. Cover Your Walls in SerenityIn a press release, Pantone said it picked Serenity because it is ?weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.?Color?s effect on mood is nothing new, and the calming effects of blue are said to work best when they envelop us, making Serenity a solid choice for all four walls. Choose Serenity for spaces where the goal is to feel more at ease, such as a bedroom or home office.Since blues can sometimes read as cold when they?re used in abundance, it?s best to balance out the hue with plush furniture, warm textures and plenty of textiles.2. Use Rose Quartz for Statement FurnitureIn contrast to Serenity?s calming properties, Pantone chose Rose Quartz for its commanding nature. It calls the shade a ?persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.?Those qualities make Rose Quartz an obvious choice for a piece of statement furniture. This shade is just outside-the-box enough to be the focal point of any space while remaining refined enough to lend a sense of elegance to the room.The key here is to keep the rest of your design simple enough to allow your Rose Quartz piece ? whether it?s a sofa, dining chairs or a crib ? to shine. Make sure the majority of the space focuses on neutral shades such as whites and grays to provide a clean backdrop for one of 2016?s star colors.3. Select Serenity TextilesIf the idea of basing an entire room around Serenity feels like too much of a commitment, try incorporating it on a smaller scale through textiles. A few blankets, a rug or some throw pillows in this winning shade of blue will provide the same tranquil ...
