Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year has been announced! Each year, Pantone publishes “a symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.” This year, for the first time ever, there are two! Rose Quartz (a pale pink) and Serenity (a hazy blue) are the two soft, dream-like colors making a splash over the home scene. Described in the Pantone’s press release as a pairing that creates instant calm and relaxation and we have to agree. Looking to bring that feeling of utter tranquility into your own home this year? Check out our list below for inspiration for every room in your home.
