Pantone Color(s) of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity

Pantone just announced their color – errr, colors – of the year for 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity... a gentle pink and airy sky blue. And the design world is all a flurry! I find it funny that people are upset that the colors remind them of gendered baby stuff. (Rolling my eyes.) For the me, the colors are reminiscent of the colors used in my grandma's wedding or (a bit less sentimental) Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, which is one of my most favorite movies ever.

*Swoon* I really need to watch Marie Antoinette again. 

I do have to confess: I'm a teensy bit disappointed though. Light pink and pale blue are just not colors that I decorate with or wear on a regular basis. Colors of the year or not, you likely won't see them popping up in my apartment. 

...But! Don't let my fondness for saturated jewel tones and moody grays deter you from bringing some Rose Quartz and Serenity into your lovely living space. 

Here's some inspiration:

Don't mind me while I light my Voluspa Proscecco Rose candle and drink tea whilst lounging on my pink fainting couch wearing a cozy sweater and gorgeous rose quartz jewelry!

Clear skies ahead! This color has fresh start and sunny vacation written all over it. So I'm going to slip into this sky blue jacket and mod sunglasses, then plan out the year's adventures in a crisp new journal... on a big jet plane.

favorite – to wear or to decorate with?
