New Year – New Color

With the New Year comes the time that everyone can start fresh. The New Year also means that Pantone has a new color of the year. This year instead of having only one color, they picked two! Rose Quartz and Serenity are the colors that you will start noticing everywhere. From the runway to nail polishes, and even now in homes! Here I’m going to show you some ways to add these colors to your home, in a subtle manner.

If you want to go for just a hint of one of the colors, art and accessories are an easy way to add color in a temporary way. Changing things like pillows or art is an easy way to get a fresh look in a space that you are tired of looking at. The colors can go well with just about any neutral. Pantone has various color stories on their website if you feel stumped on if it will work in your space!

Feeling a little bolder with where you want to use the colors? Do a piece of furniture in the color of your choice. Doing this is creating a statement piece so you should really love the color to commit to it, and base a whole room around it.

The great thing about both of these colors is the light and airy feel they create. Within the past year the color trends have been much bolder and in your face, so this is a wonderful change of pace. Serenity and Rose Quartz can you give that little bit of color you want without having to go full out. Good Luck on finding the best way for you to integrate these fabulous colors into your home!
