Hello! Today I wanted to share with you some fun news. Pantone have released their Colour of the Year for 2016, but this year it’s actually two colours…
Pink and Blue or, Rose Quartz and Serenity. The idea being that they can be used together harmoniously…It just so happens that I have been lusting after decorating our bedroom in pink with and accent colour of blue. So personally for me this colour combo gets a huge thumbs up.
Pantone go into lots of details on their site as to why these colours were chosen together.

I find these colours for me evoke memories of childhood, the whole pink and blue thing. I was never a huge lover of pink alone but with blue it really brings a smile to my face. Pantone talk about the calming effect these colours have when combined and I have to agree. Perfect for a bedroom then!Image from La Boheme
What do you think of pink and blue together?
To me they look so fresh together, so happy and unpolluted. As you can probably tell I’m a big fan.Image from Artnau
If you are feeling inspired by these colours as I am then why not visit my Rose Quartz and Serenity Pinterest board. I’ve collected lots of inspirational images of these colours together. Image from my Instagram taken on iPhone 5s.
I styled some hydrangeas that I’d dried in a vintage pink jug on my famous blue Formica table, just as a quick ode to blue and pink together in the home. I now just need to organise decorating the bedroom.
I’ll share a bedroom inspiration post with you soon but if you want a sneaky look you can have a look at my Bedroom Pinterest Board, you’ll spy some pink and blue on there for sure!
Bye for now xx
