yes, please: rose quartz

PANTONE-13-1520-Rose-Quartz

one of pantone’s colors of the year is rose quartz, and it is oh so pretty!  its not a baby pink, not too bubble gummy, less peachy than blush, just soft and subtle and beautiful.

i am loving it so much, so prepare yourself for an image heavy post!  in fact, i have a whole board dedicated to this pretty color.

these images give great ideas on how to decorate with this color – a single wall or partial wall painted, single pieces of furniture, accessories, bedding.  the key is all neutrals with single or minimal bits of the rose quartz.  when its paired with wood, light or bleached wood looks best.  my favorite of all is when its paired with copper – the pink brings out the rosiness of the metal.

have you jumped on the rose quartz bandwagon yet?  i’m thinking of starting with a pillow in my bedroom and maybe one of those tops – i’ve been eying the beaded top for awhile now!
