Pantone Colour of the Year 2016 Rose Quartz & Serenity

Since Christmas seems like a year ago and we’re all slumped back at our desks at work, here’s a little bit of excitement for the new year! Pantone’s (the official worldwide colour authority incase you didn’t know) Colour of the Year 2016 has been announced… and to everyone’s surprise, this year they have blended two shades – and two beauties at that! Rose Quartz Pantone 13-1520 and Serenity Pantone 15-3919. Basically the most perfect blush shade mixed with a lilacy (you know that’s a word) pastel blue. I’m a sucker for pastel hues so is this is my favourite Colour of the Year for a while.

I will definitely be adding a touch of these shades to my home this year, so I threw together some boards of some of my favourite pieces.

First up… the most important room in the home in my opinion – Zzzzzzz. Because sleep is my favourite. If you haven’t heard of Aura Bedding, please I beg you take a look now. Or maybe don’t because it’s unlikely having an innocent look won’t end up with you placing an order. Aura is my favourite bedding brand – which deeply saddens me because they are literally on the other side of the world…Australia. The bedding is great quality and very reasonably priced, but the last time I bought a set (which I adore), I had to pay another £70 for import duty and taxes when delivered. Cry face. None the less, probably one of my favourite bedding sets. But PLEASE stock somewhere in the UK soon Aura! There is a huge gap in the market here for young, bold contemporary bedding…

Styled up with a few other simple pieces, I present to you a minimalistic, warm toned bedroom.

Lastly but not least, my favourite look for Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2016 – Living Room. Rose Quartz has come out superior over Serenity here and I’m not even sorry, I just adore this shade for a living area. Totally dominated by a few of my favourite Nordic brands Muuto, Ferm Living, Normann Copenhagen and Bloomingville, these Scandi pieces are all on my wish list!

Which is your favourite look?
