Ok, so I’m a little late on the Pantone bandwagon this year, but it’s come to my attention not one, but two colours are going to be around in a big way this year.
Rose Quartz is the perfect pale pink hue you may associate with a summer wedding or newly decorated girls’ bedroom. I can’t think of a better partner for Rose Quartz than Serenity, a calming, mid-tone lavender blue. When paired together, the hues remind me of the pastel sunrises and sunsets you can never wait to post on Instagram. If you follow me (@vickyhbartlett), you’ll know I’m partial to the occasional dreamy morning or evening shot!
For the first time in the history of Pantone hues, it seems the focus is not on one crisp, bold colour that sharpens the atmosphere, but it’s shifted more towards modern watercolours.
Both colours have been around a while and I have a feeling these must-haves will sell-out like hot cakes!

This year’s Pantone Picks for me include some holy grail accessories and beauty favourites! Many designers and high street brands’ pieces of style candy proving popular. This is a trend that will appeal to all ages.
Still can’t decide on pink or blue, inspiration, the other VB and her baby blue Birkin!
