Use the Pantone Color Institute’s 2016 Colors of the Year to transform a personal space. The two shades are a blue and pastel pink, a harmoniously matched pair ideal for creating a serene atmosphere in any room. They offer a luxurious calming effect, blending together to create a strong sense of comfort. Match these colors with bold autumnal tones or shimmering metallic shades – either through furniture choices or wall décor, such as framed photographs. Alternatively create a bold and distinctive blend of the two shades by showcasing their elegance with unframed canvas prints that create a simple, modern look.
