For the first time, not one but two colors have been selected for the Pantone Color of the Year. Pantone recently introduced Rose Quartz and Serenity…a gentle take on color for 2016. Whether in soft or hard surface materials, the pairing of these colors bring calm and relaxation. Appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, this engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Add in silver or hot brights for more splash and sparkle.
The combination of these beautiful colors is certainly familiar to the Taos Lifestyle Team. On any given evening, Mother Nature delivers breathtaking sunsets in shades of pink and blue. As Mattress Mary has said, “Taos is impossible to describe. It must be felt.” Whether you reside in the Taos area or live in another part of the country, we bring a piece of Taos to your shopping experience. Feeling inspired by these peaceful colors? Read on for tips on incorporating shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity into your abode.
Transform your bedroom into the perfect setting for an excellent night’s sleep. The key is to mix and match colors to create a soothing space. Sheet sets, comforters, and throw pillows in soothing shades provide a respite from your day’s hectic activities. Our Cotton Sateen Comforters in Rosewater or Azul draw on Pantone’s newest colors.
If you’re not ready to make a substantial decorating change, throw pillows, wall art, and lighting are easy accents to add into your home. These new accessories can change the feel and focus of a room with little effort. Looking for ideas? Start out with our Throw Pillows in a calming shade of Seaside or our Blue and White Glass Lamp that delivers a warm ambience.
Rugs undoubtedly provide comfort underfoot. However, rugs are also an important statement piece to any room and create a “finished” feel. Select the right rug for your room by choosing a size that defines the area (be sure to measure before you buy!). Know your materials and what fits best for your environment. The options are endless from wool and cotton to art silk. Shades of Rose Quartz are incorporated into our Razz Striped Wool Woven Rug.
Are you ready to dive in and feature Pantone’s new colors in your space? Paint is the perfect and budget friendly solution. Gentle shades of pink and blue deliver a peaceful and calming feeling. Whether you choose to paint an accent wall or completely revamp your room, these colors will relax and restore!
