Pantone’s Colors of the Year: Using Rose Quartz and Serenity in your Traditional Décor

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Tips and Advice

Today we continue our series on redecorating using Pantone’s colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity.

We’ve already talked about the styles of Zen and Urban Chic. The traditional or classic style of decorating is by far the lushest of the three, including lots of texture, pattern and color through upholstery, rugs, drapery, and varied furnishings.  We love the traditional style, because the aesthetic defies all trend, yet is enduring through the ages.  If you enjoy these colors, you can add touches throughout your home to include them, or you can do an overhaul, yet still remain classic. The pastel family of colors have always been included in the tradition of decorating, in big or small ways.

If you’re in the mood for a change in your space and you love traditional décor, you’re bound to have fun with these colors. Rose Quartz and Serenity look lovely with both gold and silver accents, they pair well with darker colors, and blend beautifully with lighter schemes as well.

If you like a luxe version of traditional like the photo below, you can see how either color can easily be used in this space:

Or, if you lean toward a casual traditional style like this image shows, you can see how easy it would be to add touches of either color to this look. Simply replace the plum with either color, or use either color alongside the plum:


When you begin shopping to incorporate these colors into your spaces, look for some of the following, with either touches of the colors, or use them in a big way:

  • Reupholster your current chairs or buy new
  • Use classic patterns like damask, matelassé or chinoiserie
  • Oil portraits and landscapes
  • Tufted headboards and bedding
  • Lamps and lampshades
  • Throw pillows
  • Drapes
  • Antique Tea Sets
  • Sculptural Accessories
