Color authority Pantone recently named Rose Quartz and Serenity their colors of the year for 2016. The pastel pairing was chosen to convey rosy warmth and tranquility and to represent a person’s quest for mindfulness and serenity.
While it sounds as if we’re on a majestic mission to become one with ourselves, this duo could cause havoc on your home’s design style when selling. I’m all for welcoming new trends, but during a crucial time likeputting your home on the market, when does a trend offend?
When I first saw these picks, I immediately thought “baby nursery,” and while yes, you can certainly use these colors in a child’s room, based on their gender, why not use these pastels tastefully in a non-traditional way? Follow these simple tips in order to pull off this trend in your home when selling:
Pastel Season Pastels tend to be more accepted during the spring and summer seasons, so if you plan on selling during those months then consider using a few key accessories like pillows or throws in your home to create a light and airy feel.
Color Limits Speaking of a few key accessories don’t use this color in every room or on everything in your home. Pick and choose where you will display the colors of the year. Try using three to five accessories (lamp, pillow, vase, rug, artwork, accent chair) in Rose Quartz or Serenity in one room to create one cohesive look. These colors will stand out and direct the eye from one area of the room to the other.
Dominate Color Choose one of the colors to be more dominant when using them together. By the way, no one says you have to use both of the colors together to get this trend right. You can choose one over the other and base that decision on your current décor.
Pairing the Duo Light neutral colors will make the pair stand out. If you want to be daring, Rose Quartz and Serenity easily pair with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and shades of yellow and pink. Try using the colors with gold, silver, even rose gold to shine and sparkle.
