Every year, Pantone releases a colour they deem to be the colour of the year.  The colour of the year is the hue picks by designers, artists, creatives and general trend watchers that Pantone feels will be used in the latest fashion, fine art, graphic design and styling trends.  For 2016, Pantone chose two gorgeous colours that make the Coastal Lifestyle team very happy indeed – Rose Quartz and Serenity – two of the prettiest colours we ever did see!  The soft pink and soft blue combination, Pantone says, demonstrates an inherent balance between warm and cool, wellness, order and peace.  Pantone says that light blue and light pink together reflect mindfulness, well being, reassurance and security. Decorate in Rose Quartz & Serenity Blue making your home a Coastal Lifestyle classic.

The combination of the warming embrace of rose and the cool, tranquility of soft blue have always been a favourite here at Coastal Lifestyle.  The two hues are child-like, soft, easy to work with and very sweet.  Pantone references gender equality and fluidity in choosing the two colours together – a gorgeous idea that we can certainly get behind.  Whatever the inspiration, the rose quartz and serenity blue chosen by Pantone are gorgeous colours to influence fashion, homes, weddings and artists this coming year.  We wanted to bring you some ideas on how to use our pick of the Pantone Colours for this season – in your style, makeup, home decorating, artwork and general gorgeousness!  Here is our guide on how to Decorate in Rose Quartz & Serenity Blue.

The pretty pale pink and grey kitchen via Apartment Therapy is a gorgeously sweet way to bring soft pink into the home without your space transforming into fairy floss central.  The mellow vibe of this kitchen shows that pink can be softened by greys and blues and it can in fact, look very grown up.
