Pantone's Color(s) of the Year, Serenity Blue, is a lovely shade to use as the main hue at a relaxing afternoon soiree. Purchase macarons in a light blue shade. (These are flavored with Earl Grey and mint chocolate chips.) Then use coordinating tea towels and fancy teacups for a Parisian-inspired event.
Color Trend: Bright Coral
The use of spring hues doesn't have to be as dramatic as painting a wall or buying a new rug. Update your decor with a few new accessories in a dramatic coral color to instantly liven up any piece of furniture. To create a cohesive look, repeat the coral hue in three to four different spots within the same vignette.
Color Trend: Zesty Yellow
Bring color into your nine-to-five by giving your workspace a pop of yellow with uplifting accessories. The spirited hue will encourage your best creativity and allow you to think more clearly.
Color Trend: Magenta + Gold
A traditional cake gets a stylish upgrade with sweeps of magenta and edible gilded gold. Nine Cakes designed this two-tier white buttercream cake with magenta and yellow accents, touches of gold and whimsical dollops of icing. These colorful embellishments are the perfect way to incorporate a hot, new color trend into a delicious dessert.
Color Trend: Blush
Pantone's Color(s) of the Year, Rose Quartz, is used in the form of paint to update a flea market console table. A few coats of paint is all you need to give a vintage piece of furniture new life and bring some blush-pink color into your living room this spring.
Color Trend: Shades of Gray
Keep your bedroom relaxed with layered whites and shades of gray. A white duvet cover creates a solid backdrop to layer in a velvet gray headboard, gray sheets and gray accent pillows in a variety of shades of textures. The single color palette is used to create a calming space to dream the night away.
Color Trend: Cobalt
Give your rustic farm table a modern touch with bright, cobalt blue placemats, white plates and black linen napkins. The juxtaposition between rustic wood and saturated color is a big trend for spring.
Color Trend: Pops of White
Harmony reigns when you mix a variety of planters in all the same color. Here, the whitewashed planters are displayed on a rustic wooden dresser to create a warm, soft glow and a sense of cohesiveness around a collection of lively plants.
Color Trend: Buttercup
A light, buttercup hue adds subtleness to an accent wall. Black frames with white mattes around colorful artwork make a pop-art statement against the pastel paint. The look is finished with a glossy white shelf and black pillar candlesticks.
Color Trend: Jewel Tones
Chromatic hues and layered textures bring a neutral couch to life. Brilliant pops of color in deep jewel tones work together in this living room by creating a playful space. Start with a textured rug, then add in yellow pillows, a red throw and a lamp in saturated hues to finish the look.
