OK have to tell you I am super excited about the Pantone colours of the year!! The colours are Serenity which is this gorgeous periwinkle blue and Rose Quartz which is a lovely pale pink.
If you aren’t familiar with Pantone it’s a New Jersey based company that works with colours! They choose colours of the year with other industry professionals in fashion, home decor and they set the standard for what will be popular in the coming year!
The reason I love these colours is complex!! Firstly so many lovely things in nature pair these colours together from sunrises to hydrangeas! Personally I love Serenity. It was the colour of my grade 12 high school graduation dress and it was the colour I painted my oldest daughter’s nursery walls! Not quite blue, not quite purple but so lovely!
Rose Quartz reminds me of my favourite mini series when I was a kid. Who remembers Meggie’s ashes of roses dress in The Thorn Birds? Maybe not quite Rose Quartz but when I first saw it, it was the first thing I thought of. It’s soft, feminine and pretty!!
So there you have it, these colours have a lot of personal meaning for me!
You can only imagine how excited I was when I walked into my local thrift store recently and what did I find? A coat in serenity and a scarf with serenity and rose quartz! Officially in love! ❄️💕🌸💜
