January is here! Beyond losing weight, staying in touch with old friends and traveling, a new resolution can help you keep things simple while still being bold. A home makeover in this year’s trendiest colors will enable you to have a home that’s both modern and traditional. But how do you find the perfect balance?
Pantone’s Color of the Year is more than up for the challenge, with their bold decision to choose a two shade combination: Rose Quartz and Serenity. Combining two soft shades, Pantone states that, “Welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent.”
Beyond Pantone, Benjamin Moore’s 2016 Colors of the Year is the illuminating Simply White. Pair this classic hue with rising textures that include metals and natural elements, and you have the opportunity for a living space that’s both traditional and edgy.
Although the delicate shades of pale pink, blue and white may not be in your taste, don’t completely shut the door on incorporating them into your home. Chosen to bring comfort and peace into a room, you may find the subtleties of these colors reassuring. The warmer comforting pink tone of Rose Quartz and the cooler tranquil blue of Serenity reflect a connection with wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace. And walls in a brilliant Simply White can provide the perfect backdrop to link the colors together for a cohesively put-together look.
This year, take a chance to step into a new you. Dare to be bold, whether it’s by way of your walls, throw pillows, or other accessories! W
