“Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, Pantone 15-3919 Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing a feeling of respite even in turbulent times.
A transcendent blue, Pantone Serenity provides us with a naturally connected sense of space”
— Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director – Pantone Colour Institute
When I read the above description for the next colour in my Pantone line-up, I couldn’t quite believe how true it rang, particularly when thinking of the events that have occurred over the the past few days.
Turbulent times indeed.
Much of the UK at odds with each other; a sense of unease and upset.
I love the idea of ‘respite even in turbulent times’ and where better to recharge our batteries and relax than a bedroom?
So this is what I’ve concentrated on, this time round.
I’ve collated a little range of pieces, that reflect this lovely calming blue shade, to create — as it’s name would suggest — a little slice of serenity in the home.
A peaceful refuge, away from all the friction and wrath.

I wish that the world’s problems could be as easily sorted out, as adding a lovely bright cushion or a pretty picture to a room.
That colour really could calm a heated situation and offer relief — and peace — in turbulent times.
I yearn for a little bit of serenity at the moment.
And whilst I don’t think we’ll see it in our society for a while, at least, we can certainly add a little touch of it in the form of this lovely blue shade, that bears the same name.
