Last year I wrote up a post about Pantone’s new colors of the year for 2016. It was basically a rant and rave about how much I love Pantone’s 13-1520 color called Rose Quartz. After a few months of contemplation I decided to inject a bit of the color into my bedroom. If you asked me a few years ago if I would ever decorate my space with pink I would have said absolutely no but times have changed. There is something so soft and dream-like about this shade of pink. And it is Valentine’s day so why not talk about the color pink.
I knew that I wanted to keep it simple with just a few pieces in Rose Quartz here and there. I got this pink velvet cushion cover from Ikea. It’s a great option because it’s removable so that in the future, if I decide to change things up, I can just replace the cushion cover with something else. It was a really affordable option, at only about 8$. I also found this utility clamp work light at the Home Depot. It’s original finish was steel but used a pink spray paint to paint the outside of the shade. I fitted it with an Edison light bulb that gives off an amber glow; perfect for reading at night. Just these two little pops of Rose Quartz add a lot of character to the space and transform it into a very inspirational and dreamy space, perfect for taking naps.
How do you feel about Pantone’s Rose Quartz color of the year? I am absolutely in love with it. Happy Valentine’s Day!
