With Two Colors of the Year You Have Twice the Options!

In-Home Decorating will benefit from Serenity and Rose Quartz for embracing "soothing sense of wellness".

Move over Time magazine. Have a seat Sports Illustrated. Yes, CNN...you too. It's time for the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year. And while Time magazine's Person of the Year, Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year, and CNN's Hero of the Year are important awards for many reasons, Pantone, the company that considers itself the ultimate authority on color, has chosen its official Color of the Year. Or, in this case, "Colors" of the Year, because it"s the first time since the award's inception in 2000 that the "color" company has named two colors for their annual award.

With Serenity, a kind of baby blue, and Rose Quartz, a dusty pink, Pantone has chosen colors it feels best represent "a symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude." With previous winners that include reddish Marsala, a vibrant Radiant Orchid, and a strident Tangerine Tango, Pantone feels its comprehensive survey and research revealed that unsettling, anxious times call for calmer colors. Enter Serenity and Rose Quartz. These two colors, Pantone says, create an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone, and the cooler, tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness, and a healthy dose of a soothing sense of order and peace. According to Pantone, a wholly owned subsidiary of X-Rite, Inc., Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.

New colors for your home that evoke serenity and harmony
A comfortable home is appealing for many reasons. As a sanctuary and retreat for today's "crazy busy" lifestyles, the right colors can make a big difference in creating and sustaining a desired ambiance or mood. While brighter colors like orange or yellow transform a room with energy, sometimes these colors can be overbearing. On the opposite end of the spectrum, grays, browns and other earth tones sometimes don't project enough "life" to a room. This is where these new "honor" colors, Serenity and Rose Quartz, help tremendously. In many ways, especially when used together, these two colors will help transform an interior living space. From bedding to bathroom accents to furniture upholstery, Rose Quartz can play a wonderful supporting role in elevating a room to a Zen-like feeling that won't tire. Both Serenity and Rose Quartz can extend to a host of interior design elements, including of course, your window treatments. As a canvas of potential display and color, your window fashions play a key role in projecting a mood, and help transition your home's décor from one room to another. And because these two colors are not too bright or flashy, they'll also perform exceedingly well covering your walls, from floor to ceiling, for a truly enduring and dramatic statement.


From bedding to window coverings, you now have two new BFFs!
When using Rose Quartz and Serenity, whether in the form of window treatments such as draperies or shades, be sure to select the right accent or trim color. For example, a floral drapery style in a living room of Serenity might look best complemented with a throw or comforter in Rose Quartz. Or if your bedroom walls are Rose Quartz, then perhaps you'll want to consider Soft Roman shades in Serenity. Remember, these two colors, although beautiful separately, make terrific partners when combined! One of the best accent colors for both of these colors is white. As the ultimate neutral color, white baseboards, bedspreads, or other design elements won't compete with Rose Quartz and Serenity. As soft, ethereal colors, avoid introducing brighter colors into the mix. Instead, try to stay with a consistent color palette that shares similar mood attributes. Aside from custom drapery and shades from 3 Day Blinds, you'll also enjoy how these colors work alongside window treatments such as blinds and shutters. Blinds-from Verticals, to Cellular, to Vinyl, are available in a host of stylish colors that complement and enhance Rose Quartz and Serenity. And although you may not find texture-rich shutters in these two shades, rest assured the warmth and classic styling of shutters pair exceedingly well with these new award-winning colors.
