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.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
