Colours That Go Together - Colours of 2016

Looking for colours that go together?

According to Pantone, the colours that go together for 2016 are Rose Quartz and Serenity. These colours go together and match brilliantly with a wide range of other colours.

Why Rose Quartz and Serenity? Colour psychology.  These two colours balance warmth with tranquillity, warding off day to day stress. The warm rose tone perfectly compliments the soothing of the tranquil blue. This combination also challenges traditional colour combinations. No longer should you feel constrained by the traditional definition of which colours that go together.

Whilst the fashion industry has long since thrown away colour convention, it is only now that this is starting to happen in interior design. Expressing your personality through the colour you paint your rooms is an important way of expressing yourself. You should have the confidence to demonstrate this personality trait and not worry about being judged. Done in a considered way, there is no reason why you can't combine colours in an irreverent way.

The following guide will help you ensure you know the colours that go together with Rose Quartz and Serenity

All these colour combinations work equally as well on any surface and in any finish. Whether that be matte, eggshell, or gloss for paint colours. And don't forget, you can also apply these colours that go together to soft furnishings - think cushions, sofas, chairs and curtains.

Whilst the colour palette above is based on Pantone colours, use it as a reference guide to select a matching paint colour. Most of the major paint brands will have something similar in tone and you can always use a paint colour matching service if you can't find what you are looking for. Whilst slightly more expensive, it can be worth it.

If you are redecorating, why not bring these colours into your colour scheme? They offer the opportunity to do something different with your interior design.
