Color Trend in My Dining Room

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.

Pink and Blue Color Trend in the Dining RoomSerenity 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.


Pink and Blue Color Trend in the Dining RoomI 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.


Blue Bubble Glass GobletsAt the same time I found the vases, I found these pretty glass goblets with blue bubbles.

  6. Hi Jennifer,
    I just love the table with the blues and pink. I too love pastels. The glasses on your table are spectacular. I remember my first apartment. I had pale green on my living room walls and blue and white with a dash of pink in my kitchen. Every time I think of that apartment I have fond memories. The colours for this year are wonderful. I have gone back to all the pastel colours I love in our new home and I am so glad that I did. It only has to please us. Every morning I get up I can love them all over again.
