color punch part nine: rose quartz (blush pink!)

The Pantone 2016 colors are subtle, muted, yet charming and playful colors. While slated for this year’s colors, their subtle and charming nature allows for them to stay relevant for much longer. In this color punch round up, the focus is my favorite of the two colors, Rose Quartz. Who doesn’t love a light pink that is versatile enough to act as the main color or accent on textiles to wall treatments, as art or objects, and for furniture. Starting with the perfect mix of modern meets traditional, the linen glenlee sofa is beautiful as comfortable. Douglas and Bec's Line collection of lighting (table to floor) offers an elegant rose quartz light, which utilizes hand blown glass. For under foot a wool Moroccan rug with complementary colors provides a minimalist geometric focal point to your space. However, its texture and color can also be paired with furniture objects that provide a more boho energy.  And because my pillow obsession and collection is real, the dash pillow from leif shop is super soft thanks to its merino wool fabric. Rounding off this round-up is a beautiful print by Lene Norgaard. Rose Quartz, a subtle yet powerful color punch.

Pink on Pink on Flamingos

Holy pink! One of my favorite colors and animals is everywhere in design as of late. Now, pink is a tricky color, because the wrong shade can mimic pepto-bismol, and too much pink is overwhelmingly frightening.  Flamingos on the other hand are simply fabulous.  And I am enjoying their less campy iterations currently found in design (from interiors to fashion).  But nothing is wrong with a little outdoor whimsy to bring inside for a punch of color. Back to the pink- the glas italia table iridescent pink, blue, yellow hues bring a modern glow to your space. Its simple form and modern assembly works well as an accent or side table in ones living room or bedroom. Textiles and texture are presented well in a dark spotty pink on the flutura occasional chair.  And if you prefer pink with a deep purple/blue undertone the patricia urquiola upholstered modular sofa for moroso is lounge and envy worthy.  The geometric pastel pink pillow with gold accent is one of my paintings transformed to textile.  Rest your head on some art.

Pale Pink Accents

Pink has long been one of my favorite accent colors (flowers, art, textiles, the list goes on). I am especially drawn to vibrant fuchsias or the palest shades. Currently, the pale pink accents are taking over. I enjoy the versatility  pale pink accents offer. From softening and contrasting metallics, to adding color punch to predominantly monochromatic spaces.  For this round-up of pale pink accents I chose both large scale accents (hello beautiful area rug and modern rocking chair) to small vessels, candlesticks, pillows, and one of the most amazing stools.  Click the arrows to have a look.
