Welcome to the second installment of our Pantone Spring Colors series! Over the next nine weeks, we’ll be going over the spring palette with you, color by color. We’ll talk complementary colors and show you great furniture and accessories that correspond with each hue.
Whether you want your space to make you feel more relaxed or more energized, you’ll be a fan of spring’s best colors. They’re inspired by nature and range from soft and soothing to bold and bright, making them the perfect way to transform any home.
“Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves,” says Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute™. “With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shades that offer a sense of calm and relaxation.”

Color of the Year: Serenity
You’ve probably heard the news by now—in an unprecedented move, Pantone named two Colors of the Year for 2016. The first color is Rose Quartz, a light pink that’s soft, but not overly sweet. Today, we’ll be talking about its sister hue Serenity, a cool, tranquil blue with a hint of pale periwinkle.
“Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, PANTONE 15-3919 Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing a feeling of respite even in turbulent times,” Eiseman continues. “A transcendent blue, Serenity provides us with a naturally connected sense of space.”
Far from being relegated to a nursery, this versatile shade looks great with a huge range of colors and a variety of settings. We especially love Serenity paired with Buttercup, Snorkel Blue or Peach Echo for a fun, fresh look.
