Pantone's Rose Quartz and Serenity / Twin Colors of the Year


Rose Quartz and Serenity are Pantone's twin colors of the year and I couldn't wait to add some touches of pastel blue to my existing rose pink decor.

One of the quickest and cost effective ways to add color to your room is the addition of pillows.

Another way is to add a rug

I moved the rug on the left to the sunroom and brought in  the blue and rose rug from the studio.    

I am decorating for Valentine's day now,   so I brought in the dried rose wreath that you have seen every Valentines day since I started blogging....it's one of my favorites!
I freshened my Valentine wreath by adding fresh baby's breath and eucalyptus....they family room smells wonderful!

I also added a new pale blue bow.......

Left is my wreath  before............................... ............................................ and after

It's about 4 in the afternoon here in Eastern New Mexico and the sun is coming thru our southwest window and filling the room with light........I am sooooo ready for spring!

  9. Penny,
    It all looks so pretty! This id definitely a case of something coming back in style. Do you remember in the 80's when pink and blue were all the rage??
    I really worked hard this weekend and now Christmas is finally put away in the Living Room, Dining Room and the Kitchen. I may start my Valentine's decorating when I am off for 3 days at the end of the week and then pick up putting Christmas away in the Den and upstairs....

    Hugs,
    Deb
