“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherentbalancebetween a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothingsenseof order and peace,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
This year’s colors dare you to get in touch with a softer side in your staging.
“Whether on their own or combined with other shades, the pairing of Serenity and Rose Quartz bring a feeling of calm and relaxation into the home environment,” Pantonenotesin its release. “Like a serene sunset, Rose Quartz encourages reflection on one’s surroundings while Serenity, a transcendent blue, provides a naturally connected sense of space.”
Pantone says the colors can be used in rugs and upholstery or also work in decorative accessories, everything from kitchen tableware to candles, decorative bowls, vases, and florals.
“Coupling solid and patterned fabrics, throws, pillows and bedding in these shades provides a comforting respite and feeling of well-being in the home,” according to Pantone. “Incorporating texture enhances the duality and kinship of these hues.”
