Pantone Inspired Decor: Yes Way, Rosé!
As a stylist, I try to keep my finger on the pulse of what’s going on in the world of Pantone. Basically, Pantone is the prophet of all things color. The Pantone Color of the Year is guaranteed to be present in practically every aspect of your life in one way or another, from fashion to home décor, hence Pantone inspired decor.
This year’s Color of the Year is actually two colors! Rose Quartz and Serenity, a very soft, pale pink and a smoky periwinkle, respectively. Rose Quartz reminded me of my very favorite La Crema Russian River Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir immediately when I first saw it. I decided to take the cue and incorporate it into our home décor. Rather than buy new accessories, I worked with what I had.
Watercolor is still such a hot trend right now. To transform some hardcover books I had on hand, I simply painted some watercolor paper with a light wash of pale blush and purpley-blue. I did this on three pages and then wrapped my books — it brought back memories of elementary school covering my text books!
Another hot trend in home décor right now is agate, quartz and other natural stone accents. I scored these bookends at Homegoods a while back and they just happened to have a good bit of that cool periwinkle that Pantone calls Serenity! I really love the play between cool and warm, and hard and soft created by placing them next to the rosé hues of my watercolor bookcovers!
For my home decorating, fresh flowers are a must. I picked up a couple of bunches of spray roses from the grocery store along with some long-stemmed tulips for height. My trick to arranging grocery store blooms is to pack a whole bunch of one color and type into a vessel. Simplicity is key. The obvious choice here were these beautiful little rosé-hued roses of course! The warm glow of some candles in metallic votive holders finishes off the ambiance.
