2016 Pantone Colors Announced

29 Dec

As Pantone released the new colors of the year and the winners are Pantone 13-1520 TCX (Rose Quartz) and Pantone 14-3919-TCX (Serenity), also known as baby pink and baby blue.  This year Pantone changed up their color predictions and selected not one, but two colors they feel strongly about. Pretty pastels.  Oh, we adore you.

dec-pantone-.001According to Pantone, “As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”

We think that these colors are soothing, sweet and perfect for the new year.  Some of our favorites items which reflect this color palate include these selections.

dec-pantone-.002It’s expected that next year many household goods will reflect these colors including nail polish, kitchen accessories, clothing, household items, stationery, party accents, notepads and more.  Color is meant to inspire moods and these are indeed happy and peaceful colors. These two beautiful colors are perfectly suited for so many items.

We hope the 2016 New Year will be as beautiful and sweet to all as the Rose Quartz and Serenity colors are.

Best wishes and Happy New Year!

#NationalFriendshipDay

1 Aug

National-Friendship-Day-2015
Tomorrow is officially National Friendship Day. I see a lot of “national” days floating around on twitter and Instagram so sometimes I wonder who made them up and why. I did a little research and found out more about National Friendship Day. The date was created in 1919 as a reminder to stay in touch with your friends and send letters. U.S. Congress recognized the day in 1935 and it is always the first Sunday in August.

While it might be a little late to send your friends letters, it’s a great reminder to let your friends know how much you appreciate them. You can shoot them a quick text, an email or call them and let them know how much they mean to you. I try to tell my friends often how much they mean to me, but this day is a great reminder to let them know.

Do you do something special for your friends on Friendship Day? Maybe a fun tradition like brunch, a painting class, a girls night out? Share in the comments below if you have something fun you do. Let them know how much they mean!
