As soon as Pantone announces its Color of the Year, designers, event planners, artists and stylists celebrate by creating new decor, vignettes and roundups featuring the colors of choice. This year Pantone selected not one, but TWO colors for the first time ever: Rose Quartz and Serenity. That means double the decorating fun! We first shared a collection of Rose Quartz and Serenity decor items at the end of 2015, and now that a few months have passed, it’s fun to take another look at the amazing pieces, combinations and motifs that have surfaced. Read on for fabulous finds in harmonious, balanced shades… [photo from Bitangra via At Home Victoria]
Eye-Catching Ranges from BlueStar
Imagine adding the soft shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity to your kitchen without picking up a paintbrush! BlueStar has brought these two lovely hues to their restaurant-quality gas ranges. Yes, we’re talking about custom-colored ranges in Pantone’s Color(s) of the Year! Below we see the Rose Quartz selection:
In addition to showcasing the piece above at the Architectural Digest Kitchen and Bath Show, BlueStar unveiled the range in Serenity. Our favorite feature: the Rose Quartz knobs!
Given BlueStar’s affinity for color, it’s no wonder the brand is celebrating Pantone’s latest featured hues…and we highly approve!

We can’t forget to look to Pantone itself for authentic Rose Quartz and Serenity decor! First up: the PANTONE Chips Journal. As stated in the product description, “This soft cover journal features an artistic compilation of dramatic shades, including Rose Quartz and Serenity, the Color of the Year 2016.” It’s undeniably useful, but also lovely enough to keep on display at all times:
And you can’t beat the annual Pantone Universe mug, which highlights the Color of the Year. This year, two colors come to life, one on each side of the mug.
