All the buzz has been around Pantone’s Rose Quartz 13-1520 and Serenity 15-3919. That’s right, for the first time they are blending two shades as the official 2016 Pantone Color of the Year. These two colors embrace a balance between the opposing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue. According to Pantone, the two colors reflect “a connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace”. Don’t worry this isn’t the old Wedgewood blue or rose of the 80’s… this has a delicate touch to the tone, and beautiful in a bedroom, nursery, or office. We always enjoy seeing what Pantone has in store for us each year.  ENJOY your colorful life!

Here are some ideas on where to use Alabaster in your home:

Whether you’re willing try Pantone’s warm opposites are start with the blank slate as offered up by Sherwin-Williams, we can help you navigate landscape.
