2016 Pantone Colors: How They Fit in Your Home

As many of you probably said when the 2016 Pantone Colors were released, “How will that fit in my home?  Better luck next year.”.  

That does not have to be the case for 2016.  Serenity and Rose Quartz are two very unique colors, with their own correlating color palettes.  While many articles suggest how to pair the two together, we are going to look at how they can be individually incorporated within your existing home colors.


There could be some debate if this color is in the blue or the purple family.  We choose to stay out of the debate and determine the color based on what you pair it with.

Serenity could add a light touch to an otherwise neutral palette.  Consider a few throw pillows or a blanket in your living room.

The above color palette shows serenity pulling it’s blue tones rather than purple.  This color combo is ideal for french country, cottage, or even a beach vibe.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz typically would be thought of as a soft color; appropriate for any little girl’s room.  However, don’t let this color fool you.  It pairs excellent with a more vibrant color combo.

There is nothing like a pop of teal or orchid colors to really spark the life into Rose Quartz.  Whether you go for a bohemian vibe with the first pairings or if you like the modern wow factor of orchid, it is sure to lively up your space.
