Colour Your World | #17 Pantone Rose Quartz {Colour Of The Year 2016}

It’s the first of my Pantone posts for 2016 and what better way to start of than with one of their hotly anticipated colours of the year? This year Pantone have bucked the trend and chosen not one but two colours.

The first is Pantone Rose Quartz.

Now I’ve always said that I’m not particularly ‘girly’ and sugary pinks are certainly not high up on my list of favourite colours but I LOVE this shade.

It’s one of the most wearable, flattering tones that you can have next to your skin and it looks amazing in the home as well.

Team it with metallics — old-gold or copper sit beautifully alongside it — or sit it next to a fresh, leafy green shade and you’ll be in colour heaven.

There are so many things available to buy in Rose Quartz, on the high street, at the moment. It seems to have taken the retailers by storm and I spotted so many lovely products, it was difficult to narrow them down.

But I was so taken by this beautiful, bird print bedding from M&S that I figured it might be nice to work a little story around it.

Beautiful bedding in Pantone Rose Quartz — the colour Of The Year 2016

So there we have it.

Pretty pink picks, for a restful and romantic bedroom.

Obviously, a room full of pink accessories may not be to everyone’s taste but paint a wall in this lovely shade and — according to Dita Don Teese, in last week’s Sunday Times magazine

‘…if you have pink walls you can look amazing naked in every room.’

Now, isn’t that worth painting everything in Pantone Rose Quartz for?

Next time we’ll be looking at:

  1. Love the quote, although I’m fairly certain I wouldn’t risk painting all my walls pink to find out if it’s true (I suspect it’s not, unless you are Dita Von Tesse!). Lovely collection of items, I like the lamp the most.

  2. I am chuckling at that quote! I’m not a huge fan of pink but I love this shade – in fact I am currently wearing a jumper in this shade. How on trend am I! I adore the vase and the lamp, funnily enough I was just thinking this morning that I need a lamp for my bedroom x

  3. I’ve got to say I’m not a girly girl either really but this is a really lovely shade of pink and in a house of boys, I’m trying to put my stamp on our home with selected shades of pink and purple. I think this may be my favourite shade and subtle hints would go great in my lounge with my copper gold accessories and teal coloured sofa. Fabulous quote too!

  4. The quote made me howl laughing! I reckon I could put the qualities of Rose Quartz to the test ;-) I love this colour though – The gently pink that we have all been crying out for rather than Disney pink!

  5. Beautiful! Spring is really in the air. Until now I was a get undressed and get under the duvet quick kinda girl, now I’m thinking I might paint my walls pink and have a little dance

  6. i do love this shade and as a mum of three boys it’s nice to inject a little femininity here and there just to make my mark! I do find I sway toward blues and greys round the house but you’ve really got me thinking now. I really like that lamp.

  7. That is such a beautiful shade. I went off pink when both my girls had, at different times, pink bedrooms. However, I think this is a lovely shade and I have been thinking for a while of having it in our bedroom. You have picked out some beautiful pieces and I love that bedding from M&S, so pretty xx

  8. I never thought of myself as much of a pink girl either but I’ve grown to like it a lot more! This is a gorgeous shade and I love all the items you’ve chosen. The M&S bedding and the H&M blanket are gorgeous! xx

  9. Love these picks, that bedlinen is beautiful, I love Roze Quartz, along with Serenity, some other blue tones that is going to be my new bedroom design.

  10. I’m so glad I saw this post! I worked in fashion for around years but now I’m a work at home mum it’s hard to keep up with colour trends, and now I’ve launched my children’s clothing brand it’s good to know the Pantone colours of the year! xx

  11. Caro I love the bedding set it is just beautiful, and I would love lots of pink but I mention it and the boys hyperventilate, I ave just bought some bedding with pink in, but now want the Marks’s set I just love pretty pinks and delicate pinks, Caro I love your Panatone Posts x
