Resolve to Quiet the Mind with Pantone's 2016 Colors of the Year
"With the need for reassurance and the desire to quiet the mind, consumers are trying to balance their fast-paced, fractured and hurried lives with some downtime, calm and the opportunity to just switch off. The harmonious pairing of these two inviting shades, Pantone 13-1520, Rose Quartz and Pantone 15-3919 Serenity, embody the mindset of tranquility and inner peace consumers seem to be looking for," says the international color professionals. Whether on their own or combined with other shades, the pairing of Serenity and Rose Quartz bring a feeling of calm and relaxation into the home environment. Like a serene sunset, Rose Quartz encourages reflection on one's surroundings while Serenity, a transcendent blue, provides a naturally-connected sense of space. Both can be incorporated as accents or primary paint colors in rooms where rest and relaxation take precedence. Magic Maintenance Painting provides free consultations. 259-3373
