2016 Colors Of The Year Soften Up Your Staging Hues
By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR® Magazine
Think pink for 2016. Pantone voted two colors — Rose Quartz and Serenity — as this year’s colors of the year, a nod to softer color tones that are expected to gain popularity all yearlong. It’s the first time Pantone has voted two colors of the year.
“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
Rose Quartz and Serenity replace the earthy red wine of Marsala, voted the 2015 Color of the Year by Pantone.
This year’s colors dare you to get in touch with a softer side in your staging.
“Whether on their own or combined with other shades, the pairing of Serenity and Rose Quartz bring a feeling of calm and relaxation into the home environment,” Pantone notes in its release. “Like a serene sunset, Rose Quartz encourages reflection on one’s surroundings while Serenity, a transcendent blue, provides a naturally connected sense of space.”
Pantone says the colors can be used in rugs and upholstery or also work in decorative accessories, everything from kitchen tableware to candles, decorative bowls, vases, and florals.
“Coupling solid and patterned fabrics, throws, pillows and bedding in these shades provides a comforting respite and feeling of well-being in the home,” according to Pantone. “Incorporating texture enhances the duality and kinship of these hues.”
So could these colors have a place in your staging this year? At Houzz, designers have been showing off how they’ve incorporated the color trends. Take a peek at a few examples.
