So a couple of days ago I was talking about the colour forecast for this spring and I started thinking about how we’d use some of these shades in the home. This time round I’m looking at Pantone Aquamarine.
It’s always a little easier to keep up with trends and fashions for our wardrobe — as the high street is always full of lovely, wearable, options — but buying a new top/pair of shoes/coat is one thing… re-decorating and making over our homes?
That is a real investment; both in time and money!
That said, we can easily update a neutral colour-scheme by adding accent colours and this is the perfect way to introduce the shades of the season into our homes.
Pantone have selected 16 shades that are going to be big this season. The first is ‘Pantone Aquamarine’; a soft, chalky blue.
I had a quick look last night and there are some gorgeous pieces, currently out there, available in this shade.
Here are my top picks.
