This year color giant Pantone decided to shake things up and give us not one, but two colors of the year. Their choices are Rose Quartz, a lovely light pink (ok, we kind of called that one), and Serenity, a cool, surprisingly elusive shade of blue. To get in the spirit of things, we went on a hunt for real-life rooms that feature these trending shades.

Cool blue can be an enchanting shade for a kitchen, as evidenced by this space from Københavns Møbelsnedkeri.

As I mentioned above, Serenity is a bit of an elusive shade: not a dark blue, not a light blue, very saturated, and quite cool. I had a bit of trouble finidng spaces in this exact shade, but I think this dining room and bedroom from Elle Decor España fit the bill.

Of course Rose Quartz and Serenity are lovely together, but soft pink is also very nice with black accents, as seen on Nordic Design.
Here's one more blue space from Rue Mag. Layering a color with a slightly lighter shade in the same hue adds depth and richness.
