Every year Pantone releases it’s highly anticipated colour of the year which then becomes the must have colour for everything from fashion to interiors and weddings – all the things we love! This year however, Pantone has announced that 2016 will welcome two colours of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. With beautifully muted undertones to both shades, seemingly opposite colours become harmonious and have us all questioning ‘why didn’t we ever put them together before?’ Here we’ll take you through everything you need to know about working Rose Quartz and Serenity into your warm Winter Colours scheme.
Rose Quartz & Serenity for Fashion Winter Colours
If you’re a romantic at heart, Rose Quartz and Serenity will be sure to make your knees go weak and your wardrobe hangers giddy with excitement. This season, pair these shades together or on their own – whatever suits your style or mood. If you’re working with Rose Quartz, there are gorgeous dress options like the Tadashi Shoji Corded Lace Dress which is perfect for your high tea afternoons or romantic dinners out. If the pink dress isn’t for you, opt for a white or winter cream outfit and bring in touches of Rose Quartz through your jewellery or shoes. Nothing says feminine like a gorgeous pair of Rose Quartz heels!
When you’re looking at working Serenity to your wardrobe, think lace dresses like the Rachel Gilbert Daysi Maxi Dress or even a sleek pant suit. A pant and jacket combo in a striking Serenity shade will have you turning heads in a fashion forward office. If an all over Serenity look is too much colour for you, pair camel pants with a Serenity top or complete a neutral look with Serenity accessories for a winning style!
These two shades are also a gorgeous option when worn together. By working in accessories of one shade with clothing of the other, you will have a seamless look that is feminine and romantic – perfect for date night! To pair both colours together, work a Serenity Jacket over a Rose Quartz dress. This will create a proportioned look that blends the two shades together rather than wearing one colour in a top and the other colour as bottoms.
Home Rose Quartz & Serenity Warm Winter Colours
You just have to flick through your latest home magazine to see pink lounge rooms popping off the pages. There is something so ultra glam about a pink lounge that is contemporary, feminine and oh so classy. No hot pink panther shades here, it’s all about elegance. If you’re bringing Rose Quartz into your Winter Colours this year, make a statement with a lounge or armchair and pair back with neutral and metal tones. This will allow the pink to make a statement while the neutral shades will keep your space elegant and refined.

For those of you not up to working with pinks for your home, the Serenity blue shades will create a chic Hamptons vibe – your own piece of paradise that you’ll never want to leave. Work with timber and beige neutral accents to complete your room. A splash of black or white will also work to create classic bold statements that will keep your room in style for years to come.
Rose Quartz & Serenity Winter Colours for your Wedding
Every year the Pantone colour of the year becomes a styling must have for Weddings and this year will be no different. The softly muted tones of Rose Quartz and Serenity are perfect for a frosted winter wedding and can be incorporated into every element. If it’s Bridesmaids you’re looking for, opt for a mismatched look with different gowns in both shades for your bridal party. A lace style like the Grace and Hart Majestic Dress will be perfect for those glamorous winter weddings and finish the look off with a faux fur wrap for warmth.
If you’re looking to bring these colours into the décor styling of your wedding, opt for Rose Quartz flowers with light greenery for a frosty winter look. You can also work in shades of Serenity throughout your place settings, linens, candles and stationary. Nothing says elegant winter wedding like these beautifully frosty colours!
