It’s that time again when Pantone announces their Pantone color of the year. I always look forward to this! Why you ask? Well, I like to know what will be the hot trend in interiors and see if I am ahead of the game and already have it in my home. Last year the color they selected was less than favorably received and I made a attempt at designing a room around it. Though y’all loved the room I designed many still could not wrap their heads around the color and welcome it into their own home.

We are dissecting the Pantone Color OF The Year and showing you how to use it in your home.

Well you are never going to believe this but for the first time ever they have selected 2 colors: Rose Quartz and Serenity. They are soft and beautiful and feel a bit like a boy vs girl color combo when paired together in my opinion. BUT when used right they can really compliment each other beautifully. Take a look and here are some design tips on how to use them.

Pantone color of the year design tips:

Use as a wall color

Because these are such soft tones, they are used beautifully as a wall color especially like this below on a gallery wall.

Aren’t these drapes just gorgeous?!! I love how soft and feminine it makes this otherwise tone on tone room look.

Another great accent use is to use it in a furniture piece. This creates a great focal point for the room if used with neutrals.

Pop it in appliances

This is a more retro look to go in but so pretty in this farmhouse kitchen. I love that the bowls and cups to the left pick up the same color and make it feel seamless.

      1. I’m lusting after the wall color gracing the room with those fabulous drapes…and wondering if it could work in my 100+ year old home …

    1. They are very nursery like colors, but I do like them used as accent colors separately. Those pink curtains are really pretty!

    2. Wow, interesting selections they made this year once again! I love that room with the rose colored drapes – how serene!
