Serenity for 2016

My former design professor would laugh every year when Pantone would announce their annual color. He would say "No one should dictate which colors we use. That's ridiculous!" So why should we care about Pantone's color picks for 2106? Probably because this year's colors (Rose Quartz, a soft pink, and Serenity, a tranquil sky blue) are popping up EVERYwhere! I personally love the Serenity blue color. You can brighten it up with warm vibrant colors. It also pairs well with metallic gold. And, like its name, it really is a calming color. I think we could all use some of that! So, unlike my professor, I'm jumping on the Pantone bandwagon this year! Here are some of my finds for Serenity in home décor.....
