The use of color can really transform a space. Bright colors like red and orange create an energetic environment, while cool colors like blue and green create a calming one.
Pantone’s spring color palette is a great inspiration. It builds on the two colors or the year — rose quartz and serenity — to create a spring 2016 color palette including ten hues, both subtle and vibrant.
According to Pantone, the palette aims to transcend cultural and gender norms through the mixture of brights, which signify excitement and optimism, and softer colors that signify stability.
If you’re a fan or rose quartz, decorate with peonies, dogwood, or camelias. If you prefer buttercup try forsythia, freesias, or daffodils. Whatever you choose, they’re sure to brighten up your home and make it smell great!
