On Wednesday evening, Pantone announced their colour for 2016 and it was not one but two colours – Rose Quartz and Serenity. I don’t usually write about the colours of the year because the past number of years their chosen colours have been a bit meh for my liking [marsala sounded good, but was a bit too muddy for me]. But this year. This year I can get behind them.
I don’t like referring to colours as masculine and/or feminine, but unfortunately it’s easy to define them in that way because they have been for a long time. Yes, there are strong and soft colours, but it’s 2015 and I think it’s high time there be colour equality. They’re colours. Like whatever you want! I myself prefer warmer colours so I’m forever gravitating towards rich deep reds vs. blues. To me, red tones remind me of grand homes with tonnes of velvet curtains, panelled walls, OTT candles and the likes. Only within the past year have I stepped outside of that colour scheme and brought a bit of viridian into our home. So you never know, a bit of Serenity might sneak in too. Maybe. Maybe …
What do you think of 2016’s colours of the year? Are you open to introducing predetermined colours into your home? Or do you prefer to not follow trends? I don’t particularly mind trends. I like what I like and if it’s on trend, woo! If it isn’t, than I’m perfectly happy either way.
Happy Friday, homies! Do you have anything exciting planned this weekend? We’ll be decorating for Christmas [I’m so late this year #BadBlogger] and tuning into A Very Murray Christmas. Have a good one x
