INTERIOR TREND: SERENITY & ROSE QUARTZ

Every year I eagerly await Pantone’s Colour of the Year announcement, and after last year’s slight disappointment over Marsala (ok, I’ll admit we grew to love it) I was excited to see what the colour specialists thought would be hot in 2016.  Their choice of two colours this year threw many of us, but I couldn’t be more pleased with them; serenity – a calm and serene pale blue, and rose quartz – a soft blush pink with oodles of romance.  Needless to say, we’re huge fans of these pretty pastel shades at B.LOVED HQ, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them to create some inspiration for you this month!

I’m sure this romantic palette will inspire a whole heap of weddings this year, and that puts a huge smile on my face, but it’s interiors where my intrigue for this combination really lies.  The beautifully feminine rose quartz is perfectly balanced by the subtle masculinity of serenity – a perfect marriage for a couple’s home.  Together, the shades create a calm and peaceful atmosphere and would work well in any room of your home.  I’m thinking unashamedly girly bathrooms and bedrooms, with serenity adding contrast and guy-friendly tones to you living, dining and kitchen areas.

We love it, do you?

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
