I’m not a stickler for interior decorating trends. I believe people should live with what they love … whatever makes them smile when they walk in the front door. When chevron was hot, I never added it to my decor. And the only ombre thing I’ve ever had in my house was the frosting on a Wintermint Cake. But one interior design trend trend I think I’m going to love this year is the renewed pastel color trend started by Pantone.
Serenity and Rose Quartz were named Pantone’s 2016 color of the year. Serenity is a calming shade of blue that soothes the soul and Rose Quartz is a perfect complement. Combine the two and you have a lovely shade of lavender.
I found some beautiful blue glass vases at a very economical price and knew they’d look charming with pink roses and tulips tucked inside. Although they’re more of an aqua than Serenity, this is my personal interpretation of the 2016 color trend as seen here in my dining room.
