When Pantone announced the 2016 Color(s) of the Year last month, I’m not going to lie, I was a little disappointed. Maybe it’s because I was absolutely OBSESSED with last year’s stunning color – Marsala. It’s hard to top – and I know I’m not the only one who thinks so! From gorgeous gowns, bold flowers, luscious lipstick, and décor accents for any occasion and anytime of year, you couldn’t go wrong and the color was sure to make a statement. And I’m still convinced Marsala will continue to be a top color choice for brides in 2016!
Anyways, on to this year’s Color of the Year – Rose Quartz & Serenity! No matter the material, the pairing of Rose Quartz (light pink) and Serenity (light blue) brings calm and relaxation given their soft, subtle hues. I do have to say, they’re attractive in all finishes. The charming duo pairs easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns and taupe, and all shades of pink and yellow. Simply add in metallics or bold brights for an even bigger statement and glitz. Because like I’ve always said, what bride doesn’t love a little sparkle!
Here’s a little pin-spiration and a few recommended color combinations (thanks to Pantone) to incorporate Rose Quartz and Serenity into your 2016 wedding!
