Oxygenate . Reinvigorate .

2016... what a year. There's nothing we need more than to stop and take a deep breathe in. Oxygenate. Reinvigorate. This year's Pantone Color of the Year is inspired by the feeling of newness that comes with the first days of Spring. "Greenery" is meant to be life-affirming and full of vitality... just the attitude we need to strap on for the coming year.

As you know, I'm a huge fan of brightening the home with a ton of botanical greens but I'm not sure if I'm sold on this bright shade. How do you guys feel about it?

(Pan)Tone it Down

I’m not usually drawn to pastel colors as much but I couldn’t resist jumping on the Pantone colors of the year bandwagon. Part of the reason why I love this years color choice is that they were inspired by the trend of seeking mindfulness and wellbeing. I can get behind that! Anyway, I thought it would be fun to find ways to spruce up the home with just a bit of the Rose Quartz and Serenity, using them as accent colors. I thought that this would help to make them more accessible to a minimalist fiend like me.
