Pantone release the  colour  for 2016 – Serenity Blue and Rose Quartz

Pantone have selected Rose Quartz and Serenity blue as their shade of the year, to underline the beautiful balance between warm and cool on colour spectrum and how they can be used to create a tranquil and peaceful space. Combined to illustrate compassion and open-mindedness during times of turbulence, these serene tones are perfect for the home. Introduce some pastel perfection to your soft furnishings, furniture, upholstery, walls and carpets to benefit from this beautiful colour palette.

The combination is also mindful of the gender blur becoming increasingly prominent in fashion. It offers a soothing alternative to traditionally gendered colours. Serenity and Rose Quartz is a scheme that is growing in popularity in child friendly spaces. Consequently It is being used in bathrooms, nurseries and playrooms to create a happy space for children.

Match with very light colours to enrich your home with Scandi style, alternatively bring in some edgy industrial chic with charming greys and stark blacks.
